JROTC April News

This article was last modified on April 7th, 2022.

Our JROTC program is going well as we get close to another school year coming to an end.

This year we reflected on our freedom and our way of life as we continue to come closer together as people of a great and wonderful nation.

We at ICA (Independence Charter Academy) are proud of the dedication and sense of duty that our Cadets continue to demonstrate in the face of academic and social challenges.

Among the JROTC’s primary goals is to provide Leadership and Citizenship instruction and skills to our cadets in hopes of continuing to build a cohesive unit that will participate in serving our community as they grow into patriotic, positive, and productive citizens.

We know how important it is for our students to interact and develop positive social skills and a sense of community and responsibility. We strive to help our Cadets understand and appreciate the importance of a value system that incorporates good morals, belief in oneself, community, and respect for our country and each other.

JROTC counts as an elective and or CTE credits and offers students scholarships and educational opportunities.  We are looking forward to increasing our membership and getting more students involved. We are currently working on expanding our JROTC program to include other schools within the district. More information is forthcoming.

If you are interested in joining, please contact Mr. Maldonado or Dr. Esposito for further information. rmaldonado@helendalesd.com.

On behalf of the JROTC Cadets and ICA staff, please take care of yourselves and your families.

Thank you all for your support!
