Leadership Education and Training (JROTC)

Fishburne is one of only four programs authorized to offer JROTC during Summer School.

JROTC instruction and training is focused upon developing each student’s ability to develop leadership, character, and academic success. Taking JROTC may help cadets increase their potential to receive ROTC scholarships and to be selected for admission to one of the United States Service Academies (only Cadets enrolled in JROTC during the regular school year are eligible for academy nominations). Normally cadet officers must be enrolled in LET3 during their senior year. Thus, if your son started at FMS as a junior it is recommended that he take LET2 during the next summer.
