Parents and Cadets, please review the Cadet Handbook and the below-listed requirements and expectations for participation within the CBHS MCJROTC program. This very important information will enable a higher degree of awareness in order for the cadet's successful participation as well as the ability to have fun while learning about the importance of being an informed American Citizen and lifelong leadership skills development.                

   1.  To be eligible for enrollment and continuance in an MCJROTC unit, the student must:  

  1. Be enrolled in and attend a regular course of instruction at the school where the unit is located.

  2. Be a citizen of the United States or U.S. National or alien lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence and in a grade above the 8th Grade.

  3. Be of good moral character as determined by the principal of the school and the SMI.

  4. Be physically qualified to participate fully in the school's physical education program.  Current annual school physical evaluations, as stated above, are mandatory for cadet participation in the program. Each MCJROTC Cadet must have a current school year physical signed off by a medical doctor and a submitted copy supplied to the school nurse and the MCJROTC instructor cadre by the first week of school.


   2.  Cadets may be disenrolled from the MCJROTC Program for the following reasons:  

       a. Academic Failure – You must pass MCJROTC in order to remain a part of it.  However, dis-enrollment is not automatic.  Each case is reviewed and handled separately.

       b. Ineptitude – Students who consistently demonstrate an inability to develop leadership skills may be disenrolled.  

       c. Poor Attitude – Any cadet who consistently displays a poor attitude regarding the MCJROTC program may be disenrolled.

       d. Disrespect - Having no respect for others or oneself and failing to develop a degree of maturity needed to be successful in the MCJROTC program with regards to discipline and leadership traits and principles.  


All Marine Corps JROTC cadets must maintain a satisfactory grade point average (2.5 GPA) in all their school subjects to remain in the MCJROTC program.

Failure to maintain a minimum (2.5 GPA), as determined by the SMI and approved by the principal, will put the cadet on immediate probation during the next semester.

If this happens, the cadet may be limited in what activities he or she may participate in.

If the cadet fails to raise his/her Grade to the required level during the next semester, the cadet will be suspended from MCJROTC and required to turn in all uniforms and stop any participation in MCJROTC.

If the cadet raises his/her GPA during the probationary period, the cadet will be allowed to resume full activities. 


The Marine Corps uniform has a long history and tradition. It is a privilege that they have not earned; however, they are always required to wear it with pride and dignity

The Marine Corps JROTC program requires that cadets wear their uniform at least one full day a week.

The Senior Marine Instructor will establish what day of the week cadets should wear their uniforms. 

Any time a cadet wears their uniform, it should always be worn with pride and care. Cadets must always be careful to be on their best behavior when wearing their uniforms. 

Cadets' improper behavior is not tolerated at any time and is severely dealt with if in uniform.  


- Your appearance and conduct should be impeccable while in uniform:

- Do not chew gum. Do not smoke.

- Do not walk or stand around with your hands in your pockets.

- Wear your cover outdoors at all times and remove it indoors.

- Salute all officers. Greet all cadets and treat everyone with respect.

- Do not use foul language, tease others, or wrestle/play in uniform 


Marine Corps JROTC cadets are high school students. 

They are fully expected to conduct themselves per all school rules and regulations. 

Any cadet failing to maintain higher standards of conduct and citizenship will not be permitted to remain in the Marine Corps JROTC program.                                                                                  


Cadets will not display any gestures of affection in school or on school grounds. 

This holds especially true when in uniform and pertains to kissing, embracing, holding hands, or other forms of intimate behavior.

Affection between a man and a woman should be a private matter, and any displays of affection should be done in private. 

Cadets who think they are showing off their maturity by kissing and hugging in public only display a lack of maturity and risk a lower Marine Corps JROTC leadership grade for their conduct.

- Cadets contribute to the class with appropriate answers to questions.

Cadets will participate in weekly physical training exercises and events that are designed to develop a foundation of physical fitness.

Cadets must be prepared to dress out in the issued physical fitness uniforms on the required PT days and ensure that they at least attempt to participate and conduct the physical training in order to receive credit for the training.

Those cadets who refuse or do not conduct the physical training will not receive credit/grade for not participating.

A physical fitness test will be administered twice annually and is one of the rank promotion requirements. While it is the cadets’ primary responsibility to be able to pass the Youth Physical Fitness Test (YPFT), every effort will be made to properly prepare cadets to obtain a minimum passing score before the official test is conducted.

    1st Class       350 – 500 points

    2nd Class      250 – 349 points

    3rd Class      150 – 249 points
