JROTC Leadership Training

Leadership Education Training and STEM Programs

Leadership Education Training (LET) is administered by retired and regular Army personnel assigned to the Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps at Fishburne Military School. “To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens” is the mission statement of the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) program. FMS JROTC teaches the value of citizenship, leadership, service to the community, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment, while instilling self-esteem, teamwork, and self-discipline.

Fishburne Military School focuses on the development of better citizens by building skills in leadership, citizenship, life success, geography, cultural awareness, wellness, and fitness in a structured interactive environment.

The JROTC Department is dedicated to promoting the broad, lifelong skills that every cadet needs for success in future life and career endeavors. FMS utilizes a military structure as a vehicle to teach leadership and responsibility where students will experience a more structured and disciplined environment. This includes classroom and laboratory instruction in the history, customs, traditions and purpose of Army JROTC. Core Values are taught through classroom and field activities which are specifically designed to help young men:

  1. Build their capacity for lifelong learning
  2. Communicate using verbal, non-verbal, visual, and written techniques
  3. Take responsibility for their actions and choices
  4. Do their share as a good citizen in their school, community, country, and the world
