Welcome to AFJROTC FL-931st! Hooah!
Forest High School offers Aerospace Science (AFJROTC) as a four-year elective course granting one academic credit for each year of successful completion. Third year cadets (ASIII's) desiring to re-enroll for their forth year (ASIV) must meet a strict selection criteria that is based upon attitude, interest, behavior, attendance, instructor recommendation, test scores, working to one’s ability and predicted success as an ASIV. This is not an automatic selection. Some consider the program to be strict, while others do not. However, it must be clear to all that you will be expected to meet certain standards to be successful in AFJROTC.
"Develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community”
The objectives of JROTC are to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship, promote community service, instill responsibility, character, and self-discipline, and provide instruction in air and space fundamentals.
The AFJROTC program is grounded in the Air Force core values of integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do. The curriculum emphasizes the Air Force heritage and traditions, the development of flight, applied flight sciences, military aerospace policies, and space exploration.
Curriculum opportunities include:
- Academic studies
- Character education
- Life skills education
- Leadership opportunities
- Team-building experiences
- Intramural competition
- Field trips / training opportunities
In an effort to produce well-informed and helpful citizens, AFJROTC encourages its cadets to get involved in their local communities. This is one of the most interesting and fun aspects of the AFJROTC experience. The number, type and size of cadet community projects are limited only by their imagination. Our unit performs as a team as they coordinate everything from car washes to Silver Springs clean-ups. We also clean up the stadiums after football games and donate aluminum cans for community recycling programs. Any proceeds from these fund-raising activities benefit our cadets and our unit.
Many cadets also volunteer their time to support local non-profit events. Some of these organizations include the March of Dimes, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Adopt-a-Highway Program and the Special Olympics. Cadets have worked to clean and refurbish cemeteries, rebuild parks, and work with the visually and mentally impaired.
Just because you have decided to enroll in JROTC does not commmit or obligate you to any branch of the military. We are instructors who believe in student success. The lessons you will learn in JROTC will prepare you for a positive outlook on high school, college and your career.
