Abstract : JROTC Career Academies draw together the resources of the U.S. Departments of Defense and Education, local school districts, school teachers and administrators, parents, and local businesses to address the needs of students at risk of dropping out of school. By integrating academic and vocational instruction and focusing it on an occupational aera that is thriving in the community, academies teach students that success in school is crucial for achievement in the "real world." And, perhaps more important, they provide students with the tools to be successful in their futures there. A successful academy requires the participation and dedication of numerous individuals and groups, but the potential rewards are significant. JROTC Career Academies have many goals. Helping at- risk students complete school, develop leadership and occupational skills, and learn the value of employment are among them. Ultimately, students' lives and the communities they live in are enhanced and enriched through participation in successful JROTC Career Academies. (KAR) p. 28
