    The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC) is a program designed to develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community. Each AFJROTC class consists of three components—aerospace science, leadership education, and a wellness program. Citizenship and character education, the heart of the curriculum program, is primarily embedded in the leadership education series of courses, while sense of service and education in science and technology related aerospace science is primarily found in the aerospace science series of courses. To reinforce what is taught in the classroom, students participate in many outside activities such as field trips to military bases, aerospace facilities and industries, museums, and other areas related to aerospace education. Students are also offered the opportunity to participate in co-curricular activities to include drill and ceremonies, summer leadership school, and honorary academic groups. Community service projects are a major part of the AFJROTC experience and helps to instill a sense of civic pride and citizenship. Students are required to meet Air Force dress and appearance standards and wear the Air Force uniform once a week as well as participate in the wellness portion of the curriculum. Course offerings include Aerospace 100 "A Journey into Aviation History”, Aerospace 200 "The Science of Flight", Aerospace 220 "Cultural Studies", Aerospace 300 "Exploring Space", an Aerospace 400 "Management of the Cadet Corps." Courses will be taught on a rotating basis and no cadet will repeat a course. There is no military obligation for students enrolled in AFJROTC
