The Snohomish Marine Corps JROTC has been a part of the Snohomish community for over 50 years. The program is open to students that attend Snohomish, Glacier Peak, and Monroe High Schools.
The primary purpose of the MCJROTC Program is Leadership Education. It prepares high school students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. In order to be a good leader, one must first learn to be a good follower. As a cadet gains experience and knowledge, he or she will be given active, hands-on leadership responsibilities within the JROTC Program.
There is no obligation to military service by participating in JROTC. It is a high school class focused on leadership and character development. The instructors are both retired Marines, now certificated teachers in Snohomish School District.
