AFJROTC

JROTC logoWelcome to Phoenixville Area High School Air Force Junior ROTC!

PA-20142 Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC) Group was established at Phoenixville Area High School in the fall of 2014 by agreement between the Phoenixville Area School District and the United States Air Force.

The AFJROTC curriculum includes aerospace science and leadership training.  Cadet Officers and Noncommissioned Officers learn leadership and management skills by actively planning, organizing, and directing all activities associated within the PA-20142 AFJROTC Squadron. In essence our Junior ROTC program is designed to provide young men and women the opportunity to develop and hone leadership and management skills through hands-on experience.

While it may appear that JROTC programs are designed to serve as a transition to or potentially a recruiting mechanism for military service; the national program, founded in 1912 actually was not designed to this end. The original program philosophy, which we hold still today, is simply to provide a structured and disciplined program to aid young men and women reach their full potential as adults and citizens of our nation. Regardless of whether our students enter the military, our success is measured in the overall development and growth of our cadets.   

Mission Statement:
Through a focus on integrity, service before self and excellence to develop productive citizens and future leaders for America.
