WE DO NOT RECRUIT for the military.  At Fairborn High School Air Force JROTC, we know what it takes to enhance our students’ education. Our unique approach to learning and top quality faculty makes Fairborn High School Air Force JROTC more than just a physical High School - it’s a life experience. We invite you to explore our dynamic and diverse community and stop by for a visit at your convenience. 

Parents and Students at the bottom of the page you will find our annual calendar that gives you an idea of what we participate in and when. This calendar is VERY fluid, however, Cadets are notified weeks in advance of opportunities along with the dates and any possible fees.

NOTE: This site is a work in progress. Please send any inputs, comments, thoughts, or even corrections to us.

Fairborn High School Air Force JROTC provides an enriched learning environment that has helped countless students get ahead. Founded in 1969, the High School is located in Fairborn, Ohio, and reflects the diverse backgrounds and cultures of the area. We’re extremely proud of our students and staff, who are always eager to learn, create and grow together. Give us a call if you need more information.


You can also visit and go under the Students or Parent tabs to view current information. One of the better places to see what the cadets are doing is on our Facebook or Instagram. We DO NOT recruit for the military at all! Anyone may join. We have cheerleaders, football players, soccer players, honor society students, and struggling students. This proves that ANYONE can join.

We are one team!

All students are given a monthly flyer with all upcoming events, dates, and times. They are responsible to get these home and read!

Signing up to join is as easy as adding JROTC to your schedule. No matter the year of school you are in! You will earn credits if you decide to join a service branch or just build a great resume with JROTC. Call or visit anytime. You can check us out on Facebook and Instagram for weekly updates.

The instructors with JROTC have a combined 40 plus years military experience. The Air Force carefully evaluates all instructors before they are submitted to the schools as JROTC instructors.

Trips, Clubs, Community Service, Community Involvement, Shoot rockets, Fly Aircraft and Simulators. We do good things for all and really help focus you on grades, being respectful, and preparing for the future. We are a one team concept. All 120 plus cadets are all friends. This helps with things like tutoring, social skills, team building, leadership etc. Communication is VITAL Cadets need to make sure everyone at home knows what is going on event wise!

There are certain requirements you must meet. Standards are required. You must follow the Air Force Instruction on grooming and uniform standards. Not wearing your uniform without valid excuse multiple times will result in class failure. Same with not being in standards (Hair etc.) Fighting, disrespect to teachers/family/parents, breaking school rules etc. are NOT tolerated! Your Cadet Guide will be well read and understood by you. A form will be signed by parents stating that you have both read the guide and you are able to participate in PT. NOTE: You do not have to be in shape and may have medical issues (physical or mental concerns DO NOT exclude you) to participate, however, instructors MUST be informed.


JROTC is strong in the community! 

Cadets have a big presence in the community. From the largest watering station at the Air Force Marathon to collecting goods for those less fortunate. We participate with color guards for local occasions and work with local businesses.

The handbook:

This will guide you through the program.

You can stay for one year or you can stay four it's all up to you! You MUST read the handbook. You will sign a form and your parent/guardian will sign a form stating you understand the book.
