JROTC (Junior Reserve Officer Training Corp) has been in NYC schools for a long time. There has been a JROTC program in New York City schools since at least 1994 when what was to become one of the largest JROTC programs in the country opened at Francis Lewis High School in Queens. It didn’t take long before it was a hugely popular program.
