The Air Force Junior ROTC Corps program is designed to prepare high school students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities and privileges as American citizens. The curriculum will include strategies to help students improve communication skills, enhance social and ethical values, promote character development and physical fitness, and help develop an “appreciation of teamwork through instruction in drill and ceremonies.” The course prepares students for ROTC in college or military/civilian service. Concentrations will include Leadership, Flight Command, or Aviation. William Penn High School has developed a Partners in Education with Delaware State University that allows these students to gain actual flight experience to earn credits towards a pilot’s license.
