MARINE CORPS JUNIOR RESERVE OFFICER TRAINING CORPS (MJROTC) LEADERSHIP EDUCATION PROGRAM
We are very proud to offer Leadership Education, more commonly referred to as Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (MCJROTC), to our students at Assabet Valley. This will be a rewarding program run during our academic schedule. The program’s focus is reflected in its mission statement, “To motivate young people to be better citizens.” It prepares high school students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. The program is a stimulus for promoting graduation from high school, and it provides instruction and rewarding opportunities that will benefit the student, community, and nation. Students who choose to enroll and take MCJROTC Leadership classes are not obligated to join the Marine Corps or any other branch of the service. Students, however, must accept Marine Corps standards of discipline, appearance and training. It is a nationally recognized program that has received accreditation by The Commission of International and Trans-Regional Accreditation (CITA). The CITA Alliance includes the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS-CEMS and SACS-CSMS). It is designed to instill in high school students a value of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of ethics and honor.
