The United States Army JROTC came into being with the passage of the National Defense Act of 1916. 
In 1964 all of the other branches opened JROTC programs in high schools.
Leavenworth High School, Leavenworth, Kansas, had the first JROTC program in the united states. The school's official JROTC program has been in existence since Jan. 29, 1917.

The JROTC curriculum, which fully or partially addresses course work on leadership, civics, geography, global awareness, health, wellness, language arts, life skills, and U.S. history.
The curriculum is based on the principles of performance-based, learner-centered education and promotes development of core abilities.
Some core abilities are capacity for life-long learning, communication, responsibility for actions and choices, good citizenship, respectful treatment of others, and critical thinking techniques.
Students engage in meaningful, purposeful activities that lead them to demonstrate success through a portfolio of accomplishments.
