The Cadet Corps brings distinction, honor and respect to the St. John's community, the school and all of the students - not just cadets.
A Century of Leadership
Established by the US Congress in 1915, St. John's Cadet Corps is one of the nation's original JROTC programs and the oldest leadership program in the country. Although most cadets do not continue in any sort of military program after high school, those who are interested have great success with admission to West Point and the Naval, Air Force and Coast Guard academies, as well as with earning ROTC scholarships.
