AFJROTC Additions/Substitutions

   

Social Studies: World Geography (5 credits)

Substitute Cultural Studies:  An Introduction to Global Awareness (5 credits) - Cadet Year 1

Science: Elective (5 credits)

Add The Science of Flight: A Gateway to New Horizons (5 credits) as a science elective - Cadet Year 2

These adjustments are applicable to students enrolled in the AFJROTC Program during the corresponding academic year as Millard Public Schools’ courses are required and as applicable to the Cadet Year. Cadet Years equal the number of years within the AFJROTC Program and are not related to the grade level in high school (i.e., Cadet Year 1 could be a student in ninth, tenth, eleventh or twelfth grade).

All AFJROTC courses are required in the sequence outlined in the High School Curriculum Handbook and Registration Guide regardless of grade level when entering the AFJROTC Program and will count as elective credit if a student has already fulfilled a graduation requirement listed on the above chart.
