About Us

The mission of the Marine Corps Junior ROTC program is Leadership Education. Participating in the JROTC program incurs no obligation or expectation of future military service. The program is designed to complement and augment the educational goals of Lake Region H.S. The objectives of the program are met through specific instruction for the development of self-discipline, honor, integrity, citizenship, basic military skills, marksmanship, and Marine Corps History and Traditions. Being a JROTC Candidate at Lake Region provides immediate opportunities for close camaraderie with others who value professionalism and excellence and seek the opportunity to serve community and country. Lake Region’s JROTC program has been awarded National Honor School status in every year of existence and is considered one of the top high school programs in the State of Florida.
