Parents and Guardians: Welcome to the Air Force Junior ROTC (AFJROTC) 793rd Cadet Wing at Tom C. Clark High School
Your daughter and/or son is joining a first-class instructional program with dedicated and experienced instructors who will go the extra mile for each cadet. We will provide a learning environment that is safe, educational, inspiring, fun, and physically challenging.
The mission of AFJROTC is to develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community. Our core values are: "Integrity First", "Service Before Self", and "Excellence in all we do". Our objectives are to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship, promote community service, instill responsibility, character, self-discipline, and provide instruction in air and space fundamentals.
It is important for everyone to know that AFJROTC is not a military recruiting program, however cadets who are enrolled may choose to join (if qualified) any military service following graduation.
