Course Description:
 Introduction to Leadership Education 1. This course is the first in a series of courses that make up the Marine Corps JROTC program at University City High School. The overall aim of the program is to provide students with citizenship and leadership education while teaching them respect for constituted authority. The eight-course series is designed to accommodate the school’s block scheduling and represents a total of four years, or levels, of instruction. In this introductory course, students are taught how to be good followers and learn the importance of teamwork and discipline.

While still receiving instruction in core areas such as leadership, fitness, and wellness, these students will also be evaluated in each of the following subject areas:

  • The Marine Corps JROTC uniform program
  • Rates/ranks of the United States Marine Corps and the Marine Corps JROTC
  • Military customs, courtesies, etiquette, and ceremonies
  • Introduction to military drill
  • Chain of command
  • Eleven general orders
  • Physical fitness exercises and qualifying minimums
