About The King's Academy JROTC
The Kings Academy Knights Battalion is the first and only homeschool JROTC program in the nation. Our commitment to excellence and leadership sets us apart. We teach our cadets community service, academic excellence, and leadership. We host information meetings throughout the year for prospective families and returning families and cadets. The JROTC mission is to motivate young people to become better citizens. Within this context, our goal is to make your student as successful as possible as a high school student and future adult citizen of our country. It is not the intent of JROTC nor is it my mission to recruit your child for future military service; however, several students have chosen this noble and rewarding path following graduation from high school. Your student will be challenged intellectually, physically and morally within the JROTC curriculum. Augmenting the JROTC curriculum are various special-teams in which your child may participate. These include the Raider team, color guard, Cyber-Patriot team, rifle team, and more. We round out the program with fun activities such as field trips to various Atlanta metro locations, formal JROTC ball, and an awards ceremony. For those JROTC students and their parents who feel that future military service is a possibility, College ROTC is available with the opportunity to receive a fully-funded 4-year scholarship if qualified. Since inception many of our cadets have received full four-year scholarships. If you are interested in finding out more, check out our social media page and feel free to contact us!
8th Grader Inclusion Program
Our JROTC program is proud to announce that we have started an 8th grader inclusion program!
This is a fantastic opportunity for students in 8th grade to join our program!
A Shadow Day is where prospective cadets can come preview our program and see what is like for a day. Come out and see what our program has to offer to cadets on an everyday basis! We highly recommend attending this fun and exciting event!
Vex Robotics Team
The JROTC Knight’s Battalion at the King’s Academy is excited to be launching its first VEX Robotics team to compete internationally this coming 2019-2020 school year. After seeing the enthusiasm among the cadets during the preliminary meetings this past spring, and the enthusiastic turnout for the week-long Cyber-Robotics Camp we held in June--using the parent-donated VEX IQ equipment and receiving parent-provided instruction--we feel we have the support we need to have a successful year ahead!
