The JROTC Mission

"To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens!"
The Waynesville JROTC Tiger Battalion is designated by US Army Cadet Command as an Honor Unit with Distinction, which is the highest level a unit can achieve in JROTC.  We have been designated an Honor Unit with Distinction every year since the program was created in Waynesville in 1994.  Our Drill Team, Color Guard, and Raider Team are Nationally Ranked.  We have over 275 Cadets in our program, with three instructors.  Our goal is to help each Cadet maximize his/her potential and for them to do their very best in every endeavor (Scholar, Athlete, Leader).  
 JROTC is a HS elective.  Students can take JROTC for all 4 years.  Cadets receive .05 elective credit per semester (4 credits over 4 years).  Cadets receive .05 credit for PE (Physical Education) upon successful completion of the LET-2 year and the approval of their instructor.  Cadets also meet their Missouri DESE Personal Finance requirement during their LET-3 year, subject to successfully passing the MO DESE Personal Finance Exam.
