About the BMHS Naval Junior Reserve Officer's Training Corp
Brien McMahon Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC or just JROTC) is a high school program consisting of elective courses and extracurricular activities. The curriculum is a 4 year elective, but students may take it for only 1, 2, 3 or all 4 years. JROTC is not a military organization, nor is there any associated obligation to the United States Armed Forces.
The JROTC unit is a student run organization with the JROTC teachers as mentors. Student / cadets earn rank (promotions) and through demonstrated performance, aspire to future leadership roles in the unit. Those student/cadets staying with the program become the leadership/ staff of the unit in their third and fourth years. Modeling a naval military unit, they have a cadet Commanding Officer, Executive Officer and all other positions one would expect to find in a naval organization. Student/ cadets progressing beyond the first year will be trained in areas including naval science and history, seamanship, leadership, health, orienteering, and future career planning.
Whether a student seeks to make new friends, learn about how to become more self-disciplined and serve their community, or would enjoy some of the extracurricular activities –BMHS Navy JROTC has something to offer any student with a positive attitude.
