JROTC - Leadership Education and Training
The Army Junior ROTC program is an academic course for grades 9-12 of non-military secondary schools. Major subject areas in the curriculum are leadership, citizenship, communication, history and life management skills (physical fitness, first aid, self-esteem, health, drug abuse prevention, career opportunities, etc). Other subjects include map reading, technology, command and staff functions, and the role for the U.S. Army in the nation's defense.
These courses are available to all FCPS high school students; however, this course is centralized and only taught at Liberty High School. Students from another county high schools will be provided transportation for this class, but must spend half of their day outside of their base school.
