JROTC may be taken as a
freshman course. Freshman are required to take Geography as one of their
subjects; however, you may substitute JROTC for the Geography requirement in
each of the majors except Excel and Social Studies. Social Studies majors
may delay the Foreign Language requirement for one year, so they may take ROTC
as a freshman.
The primary goal of JROTC is to motivate young people to be better
citizens. Some of the desired learning outcomes are citizenship,
leadership development, physical fitness, development of communicative skills,
self-discipline, and self-confidence. Enrollment in JROTC does not in any
way obligate you for future military service. JROTC extracurricular
activities offer an opportunity to participate as a member of the Raider Team,
Rifle Team, and Color Guard.

COURSE SYLLABUS -- The mission or goal of JROTC is to motivate young people
to be better citizens. The Louisville Male High School's JROTC program is
the oldest in Kentucky and may very well be the oldest in the nation. The
program is an integral part of the traditional concept and basically operates
as follows: The course is a part of the school's curriculum and one
credit is earned for the successful completion of each year. JROTC may be
taken all four years of high school and may be chosen as a major. The
program 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. It provides instruction and rewarding opportunities, which will
benefit the student, the community, and the nation.
