The Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) Program prepares high school cadets for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities and privileges as an American citizen. The program is a stimulus for promoting graduation from high school and provides instruction and rewarding opportunities, which will benefit the cadet, community and nation.  The JROTC department has instruction in leadership techniques, citizenship effective communications, land navigation, marksmanship, American Military history, and physical fitness.


  • JROTC Raider Tryouts Update

    On 9-10 August 2017 the Putnam County High School JROTC held their raider tryouts. Over thirty cadets came out and gave their all pushing through the intense exercises and running. We now have twenty-four cadets on the competition team; these cadets will be working hard over the next four weeks to prepare for their first competition in Athens, Georgia on 16 September 2017. Thank you to all of the cadets for their hard work and participation.
