    The fully-accredited Army JROTC Program of Instruction is designed to help our young people to be better citizens and fully supports the APS focus on preparing our students to become “viable 21st Century citizens of the world”.  Every class, every event, and every activity we offer is aimed at providing leadership development and practical life skills growth opportunities to our nearly 3,000 cadets.  Each member of our fully-trained and dedicated instructor staff has made a personal commitment to continue to serve our nation by sharing their professional experiences with their students, by providing them the best instruction possible, and by instilling in each student a strong sense of self-discipline, responsibility and self-worth.  We constantly strive to be better at everything that we do and to attain our goal, which is also our motto – “LEADERSHIP EXCELLENCE”.
