To instill in students the value of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment.
The Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) program began in 1916 with the signing of the National Defense Act of 1916. The first unit was established in Leavenworth High School in Kansas in 1917. After World War II, JROTC saw little growth until Congress passed the JROTC Vitalization Act in 1964. This allowed other branches of the service to also offer JROTC. The first Navy programs began in 1966. Today there are over 600 NJROTC programs worldwide including Japan, Italy, Spain, Guam, Alaska and Hawaii. All NJROTC instructors are retired officers and enlisted personnel who are required to be certified by the Navy and obtain a teaching credential to participate in the program. The Navy provides textbooks, computers, audio visual equipment and complete uniforms to all cadets. They also fund the program for field trips and field meet competitions with other NJROTC programs.
El Camino Real High School began its program in 1970. They earned the highest honor of Distinguished Unit for the first time in 2004. They have earned that distinction each year since, and this year's cadets are focused on maintaining that level of excellence.
