The Marlboro County HS Army JROTC programs mission statement is to Motivate Students to be Better Citizens. We fulfill this mission by the use of our United States Army JROTC curriculum: Leadership Education and Training. In conjunction with after school programs, peer mentoring, and service learning projects, our cadets self efficacy is raised, in conjunction with their motivation and self esteem. Career goals and realistic expectations are a factor in working with individual cadets as well as a very comprehensive pregnancy prevention program. Finally, collaboration with community adult civic organizations for additional adult mentoring has been extremely effective for the overall benefit of our cadets and program as a whole.
