Welcome to C.A. Johnson High School AFJROTC

  • Welcome to Air Force JROTC. The mission of AFJROTC is to "Develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community." AFJROTC is not an USAF accessions program and cadets are never under any obligation to join the military. AFJROTC is a Title 10 US Code mandated citizenship training program that is designed to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship, promote community service, instill personal responsibility, character, and self-discipline. The program achieves this through classroom education in air and space fundamentals and hands on learning opportunities in a number of fun and challenging extra-curricular activities. 

    The AFJROTC program is grounded in the Air Force core values of “integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do.”

    There are over 1,950 retired USAF instructors who lead, mentor, guide, and teach our cadets in high schools in the US and around the world. AFJROTC enjoys overwhelming school administration and community support because of the huge positive impact on cadets, schools, communities, and our nation. In many communities that have no military bases within many miles, the cadets and instructors of AFJROTC are truly “The face of the US Air Force in communities all over the US and the world.”
