Spring Branch ISD

Naval Sciences Instructor



Welcome to the Spring Branch ISD Navy JROTC Program at the Guthrie Center for Excellence!

The JROTC program was established by Public Law in 1964 and may be found in Title 10, U.S. Code, Chapter 102. The NJROTC curriculum emphasizes citizenship and leadership development, as well as our maritime heritage, the significance of sea power, and naval topics such as the fundamentals of naval operations, seamanship, navigation, and meteorology. Classroom instruction is augmented throughout the year by community service activities, drill competition and field meets, field trip visits to college campuses and naval activities, and much more. Uniforms, textbooks, and training aids are provided by the Navy.

The JROTC program teaches cadets self-discipline, self-confidence, and leadership skills to help meet life's challenges, preparing them for life after high school regardless of whatever career path they decide to take. Participating cadets do not have to serve in the military after high school graduation. However, JROTC cadets do have a higher than average selection rate for college ROTC scholarships as well as access to special scholarships from within the program.

Congratulations on your course choice. We’re looking forward to Fair Winds and Following Seas!
