- PE CREDIT
Elective credit and Physical Education credit will be offered for each student who successfully participates at each grade level.
- HIGHER RANK FOR ENLISTMENT
If a cadet decides to enlist directly into the armed forces following high school graduation; they can enter at a higher rank by virtue of their participation in MCJROTC.
- COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS
Chances for obtaining a college ROTC scholarship (worth as much as $150,000) are improved if a student has had MCJROTC. In addition, colleges may also give ROTC credit for MCJROTC, reducing the overall requirement for graduation. Finally – there are certain scholarships offered at Orange High School which are available only to JROTC cadets.
- NAVAL ACADEMY NOMINATIONS
Each Honor School in the Marine Corps JROTC program is allowed to nominate outstanding cadets for appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy. This privilege allows a cadet to circumvent competition with civilian applicants for the limited number of congressional appointments.
