WHY I SHOULD JOIN
Joining Air Force Junior ROTC is more than just joining a class, it's about joining a family. The Air Force's creed includes the phrase "never leave an airman behind", that same phrase has always been used here at SMHS AFJROTC AZ-911.
AFJROTC cadets who choose to continue their education may receive special consideration for Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps scholarships. Many of these scholarships will pay for two, three, or four years of tuition, books, and fees at numerous universities and colleges and allow cadets to pursue studies in various technical and non-technical majors.
Cadets completing two years of Air Force JROTC and who continue ROTC in college may waive one term of the Air Force ROTC program. Students completing three years in Air Force
JROTC may receive credit for a full year of college-level Air Force ROTC.
You can start your military career your freshmen year. Cadets electing to enter the military immediately after graduating from high school are eligible to enlist in the services at one to two pay grades higher than other enlistees. Students completing three years in Air Force JROTC may be eligible to enter the Air Force two pay grades higher than other enlistees and are automatically enrolled into the Community College of the Air Force to receive college credit toward their associate’s degree.
