Salem High School Marine Corps Junior ROTC (MCJROTC), is offered at Salem High School as an elective.  A student may participate in MCJROTC for all four years at Salem High.

    The Marine Corps JROTC program plays an important role in the success of America's children and communities. Since its inception, the JROTC program has been viewed as a strong program that provides youth with much-needed skills in citizenship and leadership. Additionally, numerous studies have shown that students who participate in JROTC programs have better attendance, grades, and graduation rates relative to students who were in general academic programs. These students also demonstrate a higher level of participation in community service activities.

    The effects of a Marine Corps JROTC unit extend far beyond the classroom and into the community in developing character, leadership, and civic responsibility. The program makes a difference by keeping kids in school, providing an environment conducive to their personal development and growth, and helping them become productive members of the community. The program ultimately produces young men and women who are ready to accept the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship.

   Specifically, our program at Salem High School offers students the ability to explore their potential as leaders and develop personal skills and life habits that will aid them throughout their life as they deal with an increasingly complex world.
