    Mission Statement: To develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community.
    Club’s History: The California 901st Air Force Junior ROTC (AFJROTC) Program was established at Casa Roble High School in 1990, in an agreement between the San Juan Unified School District and the United States Air Force. The AFJROTC curriculum includes aerospace science related academic instruction and leadership training. The cadet group is a military type organization, completely managed and operated by cadets. It is through this cadet organization that cadets learn leadership and organizational skills that will serve them well throughout their lives. They work together to plan and conduct a very wide variety of school and community service projects and thereby learn the true meaning of “service before self” and “excellence in all that we do”…objectives of the AFJROTC program.
    What do you do? Activities?:  The question should be what don’t we do. We have four drill teams comprised of an Armed Team (with Rifle), Unarmed Team (no weapon), Saber Team (with Saber and Scabbard), and Color Guard. JROTC sports teams that include Softball, Basketball, Volleyball, Bowling and Chess. We compete in the College Options Foundation Academic Challenge; have a Remote Control Airplane Flying Club, Fitness Club, Tutoring Team, and much more. We take awesome field trips like the Reno Air Races, California Aerospace Museum, IMAX, and Air Force Base visits just to name a few. We also participate in too many school and community service projects to even list on this page…needless to say your 60 hour community service requirement to graduate at Casa is money in the back with JROTC. We Build Better Citizens for America!
    Who should join, and why? Your experiences in AFJROTC will be the basis for life-long memories and close friendships. We sincerely believe you will benefit from the teamwork, precision, self-discipline and leadership experiences that you will encounter. We are sure most students have questions about AFJROTC. First, let us tell you it is neither boot camp nor combat training and it is not a recruiting program for the Air Force. It is a classroom and "leadership laboratory" that will help you develop decision-making and communicative skills while building self-confidence as a leader. If you have never been in charge or responsible for anything, get ready -- the opportunities are here! While our program will be challenging, and sometimes demanding, we believe you will experience a sense of accomplishment and pride that is hard to put into words.  We look forward to meeting you!
    When and where do you meet?  We meet in classroom C-6 daily for class and after school on pre-determined dates depending on the activity you are involved in.
