The curriculum consists of 180 hours of instruction that has been established and jointly approved by Cadet Command, the State Board of Education, and the local county Board of Education.   EFFECTIVE 14 MAY 2005, NOW IT IS SACS APPROVED AS WELL!  HOOAH!

The POI for the JROTC program is broken down in four LET levels of training, LET-1 for the first year cadet, LET-2 for the second year cadet, LET-3 for the third year cadet, and LET-4 for the fourth year cadet. The core curriculum is presented in the first year and then reinforced using the building block method for the second through the fourth year.

The course of instruction, contrary to many, is not pro- military subject matter, it is primarily instruction that teaches leadership, citizenship, patriotism, discipline, written and oral communications, team building, self-esteem building, respect for constituted authority, health and safety, drug and alcohol abuse awareness, physical fitness, nutrition, life skills, and history. The subjects taught in JROTC cuts accross the entire high school curriculum and after classroom discussion, cadets implement what has been learned into a real world environment. They hone their leadership skills by DOING and are constantly evaluated by their peers and instructors. All of these subjects enable the instructors to key all of their efforts into building leaders for the twenty-first century and accomplish the mission of JROTC which is to motivate young people to be better citizens.
Many POI enhancers with supporting videos, handouts, etc., have been provided and allows the instructors to supplement the POI WHENEVER and WHEREVER they feel the need warrants the injection of this material.
Some of these include:
UNLOCKING YOUR POTENTIAL
WINNING COLORS
POWER LEARNING

The curriculum has been developed by professional educators, civilian and military, and consists of all lesson plans, instructor manuals, student texts, programmed texts, test banks, overheads, supporting documents, videos, pamplets, handouts, etc. They are constantly reviewed, updated, supplemented, and distributed to all programs in a timely manner. The proponet for this action is at Cadet Command level and rests with the Junior Division Directorate for training.
