To motivate young people to be better citizens

The Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps came into being with the passage of the National Defense Act of 1916. The focus of JROTC was on secondary schools and was part of a national commitment by the Department of Defense to give back to the civilian community by supporting public education. Under the provisions of the 1916 act, high schools were authorized the loan of federal military equipment and the assignment of active or retired military personnel as instructors on the condition that they followed a prescribed course of training and maintained a minimum enrollment of 100 students over 14 years of age.

Cypress Lake High School JROTC program began in April of 1968 as the first program in Lee County. We have grown to 14 public schools and one Charter School in Lee County. Learn more information about JROTC Program
