Five Schools' Teams Advance to JROTC Academic Challenge

Teams from Madison, Kearny, Morse, Crawford and San Diego high schools will compete in the JROTC Academic Challenge, which will test their knowledge of high school math, science and language arts as well as JROTC leadership curriculum.

These five high schools were among more than 1,300 high school Army JROTC programs through the nation that participated in the College Options Foundation, Level 1 JROTC Leadership and Academic bowl in November.

The competition is designed to challenge and prepare high school students for college entrance exams using a fast-paced internet-based program. The five teams will compete to qualify for the next level of competition to be held in Washington, D.C., in June.

Last year, the team from the San Diego High School Educational Complex represented the district in the Washington DC competitions. See the competition's web site for more information.
