1. The California 901st Air Force Junior JROTC (AFJROTC) Program was established at Casa Roble High School in 1990, in an agreement between the San Juan Unified School District and the United States Air Force.
2. The AFJROTC curriculum includes aerospace science related academic instruction and leadership training. The Senior Aerospace Science Instructor (SASI) and the Aerospace Science Instructor (ASI) are both retired Air Force personnel with a total of over 60 years of Air Force experience. Additionally, they have extensive backgrounds in Professional Military Education and Air Force training.
3. The cadet group is a military type organization, completely managed and operated by cadets. It is through this cadet organization that cadets learn leadership and organizational skills that will serve them well throughout their lives. They work together to plan and conduct a very wide variety of school and community service projects and thereby learn the true meaning of “service before self” and “excellence in all that we do”…objectives of the AFJROTC program.
4. This Cadet Guide contains policy, guidance, requirements, and rules of conduct for AFJROTC cadets of Casa Roble High School. Each cadet is required to read and study this Guide, as its contents must be mastered to be successful in the JROTC program.
5. Congratulations to each of you on your decision to enroll in the AFJROTC program! You are about to embark on a journey of learning that few high school students get to experience. We think you will be amazed at how much you will grow as an individual and we wish you success and personal satisfaction as members of the Casa Roble High School AFJROTC Group.

This page may well be the most important in the Cadet Guide. Do more than just read it. Read it slowly…think it over…and read it again. Then think about its meaning and what honesty, integrity and honor really mean to you.
I Will Not LIE, CHEAT OR STEAL nor TOLERATE those among us who do.
These simple words provide a basis for your personal code of ethics that can last you the rest of your life. This code of honor is specific and clear. A cadet is expected to have complete integrity in both word and deed. It means being worthy of trust and being worthy of being put into positions of responsibility. Other cadets will depend on you and you will depend on them. Teamwork is then possible.
In any organization leaders tolerate mistakes and weaknesses in their subordinates, as long as they are making an honest effort. However, one weakness no one can tolerate is dishonesty. Dishonesty includes more than just blatant lying, cheating or stealing. It includes “talking around the truth”, withholding information, intentionally misleading someone, spreading rumors, or unfairly taking advantage of someone or some situation. Dishonesty can bring down any organization that depends on its members to trust each other and to work together as a team. Air Force Junior JROTC is this type of organization.
The code goes beyond compelling individuals to hold themselves to this standard, it requires them to enforce the code…to act positively if they observe or become aware of others violating the code. This is the code that we will structure all of our activities around in Air Force Junior JROTC. We must be able to trust each other at all times.
If you are caught violating the code, you can be removed from Air Force Junior JROTC. If you see or know of others violating the code, you must report it to an instructor. Honor and integrity…are not just words…make them a way of life.
