The Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) Program at Escambia High School, Pensacola, Florida was established on May 26, 1967.  This makes this program one of the oldest in the Nation.  The program transitioned from Area 7 to Area 8 in March of 2001.  It increased from a 3-year course to a 4-year course of instruction.  The number of Cadets has risen from 93 to 250 annually.

The NJROTC Program goals are to instill in high school students the values of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment.  These goals are met by teaching specific objectives based on the core values of the United States Navy:  HONOR, COURAGE, and COMMITMENT.  The full list of objectives can be found in the following instructions:  Escambia High School Cadet Handbook and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP), OPNAVINST 1533.5C, and CNETINST 1533.9K.  All instructions are linked on this website for your viewing convenience.
