Dundalk High School’s NJROTC

MISSION STATEMENT:  “To instill in our cadets a sense of accomplishment by promoting patriotism, honor, self-discipline, and leadership, developing informed and valued citizens who have deep respect for self and others.”




Officer in Charge: C/LT

Assistant: C/PO1

Scheduled Meets:




The Academic Team is a close knit, intellectual group of cadets who put in time and effort to study the NJROTC curriculum in depth.  They go above and beyond what a typical cadet is expected to know in terms of academics.  After putting in many hours of intensive study the team travels to different schools for Academic Team Competitions or Brain Brawls.  Brain Brawls are a great way to get to know cadets on the team better as well as meet cadets from other NJROTC units.


At Brain Brawls each member of the Academic Team sits before a buzzer while an instructor from the host school reads aloud, miscellaneous trivia questions pertaining to the NJROTC curriculum.  Cadets who feel they are not athletic or don’t have the desire to participate on the drill team should consider the Academic Team. Textbooks for Brain Brawls are provided and can be taken home by the cadet for study and practice on their own time.  The Academic Team meets on Monday for academic studies.
