HS Academic Team

Academic Team

The JROTC Academic Bowl is to prepare students for state exit/graduation exams as well as college entrance exams, such as the SAT and ACT. However, many JROTC instructors are understandably interested in measuring how well their cadets are learning the JROTC curriculum. Therefore, we will have a mix of JROTC curriculum as well as English, Math, and Science questions in each level of the competition. The JROTC curriculum questions will focus primarily on leadership preparation, wellness and fitness, group/team dynamics, and communication skills. A few questions about current events are also included – focusing on national and international news, particularly international relations, politics, business, and science. All of the current events questions will be taken from major media available on television, the internet, and in daily newspapers (see suggested resources below).

Each JROTC unit will be allowed one Academic Team consisting of four cadets – they may be freshmen, sophomores, or juniors. Seniors may not participate on the team. Academic Team members may NOT participate on the Leadership Team. Two alternates may be named and may participate in the online testing however alternates are not required. If your unit is eligible to participate in the final competition in Washington, DC, only four team members may attend JLAB. Alternates will not be allowed to attend; however, we will be live streaming many of the main events during JLAB including the Championship.

Level I includes 25% JROTC questions, 65% SAT/ACT-type questions, and 10% current events questions.

Level II includes 15% JROTC questions, 75% SAT/ACT-type questions, and 10% current events questions.

We encourage all cadets, whether they are on the academic team or not, to prepare for the

ACT, SAT, and ASVAB tests by reviewing English, Science, and Math coursework.

There are several resources available, free-of-charge, to all students.
