Summer Opportunities

Wake Forest Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) Program cadets and cadre are excited about the academic and behavioral progress we have experienced during recent years. We look forward to similar results this year and ensuing years. However, positive results are dependent upon a uniform understanding, agreement and adherence to the ever-increasing demands of our democratic society and the global economy. We must continue to define and Communicate Standards for Collaboration, Creativity, Communication, and Critical Thinking, (Competencies for the 4Cs), in doing so we motivate and activate the thought patterns and work ethics conducive to cadet’s success.

Parent-cadet interactions are major predictors of school success. Please join us in striving daily to help our cadets be the best that they can be. You are an integral member of our JROTC team. Listed below are opportunities that will also enrich your cadets during the summer as well. This is a diverse list of opportunities, most are based on an applications process, parents normally incur some cost, i.e., transportation, Participation Fees etc. (some are reimbursed, some are not).
