Apply for JROTC, November 18, 2020 – January 5, 2021

Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC) programs are offered at Atholton (Army), Howard (Army) and Oakland Mills (Air Force) high schools. Each JROTC program provides an introduction to career opportunities in the United States Armed Forces and teaches principles of leadership, discipline and civic responsibility.

Any student who wishes to participate in JROTC but does not attend one of the schools that offers the program may apply for participation. Each school has a limited number of additional spaces available. To apply for participation for the 2021-2022 school year, students must contact a JROTC official between November 18, 2020, and January 5, 2021, to schedule an interview. Only students who are interviewed during this designated period will be considered for enrollment.

Students who are approved for admission into a JROTC program will be notified by letter by January 22, 2021.

Beginning November 18, to schedule an interview, contact the JROTC official for the program of interest:

  • Army JROTC at Atholton High School: Lieutenant Colonel William Reinhart, Senior Army Instructor, or (410) 313-7076
