Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps

NJROTC is a citizenship and leadership program designed to encourage and help students to become informed and involved citizens of the United States. Oak Harbor high school started its Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) program in 1973. Today, there are over 230 active cadets. These dedicated cadets can be found volunteering throughout our community on a regular basis.
