A special thanks goes out to the Friends of the NRA organization for supporting our program with a grant to start our precision shooting program. This program provided 6 shooting coats in 2014, 6 shooting trousers in 2015, and practice pellets that will benefit our marksmanship program for years to come. We continue to improve our program every year and rely on organizations such as the Friends of the NRA to support our enhancements. Otherwise, we would not be where we are now. 


The Trojan Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps has earned a top score in a rigorous inspection by the United States Army Cadet Command.The unit must achieve above a 97 percent score required to earn the Honor Unit With Distinction designation. Less than 10 percent of all high school JROTC programs throughout the country qualify for the Honor Unit With Distinction level. The comprehensive evaluation included a cadet-led Command Staff briefing, personal appearance inspection of the cadet corps, demonstrations of basic knowledge of JROTC subjects, and a drill and ceremonies evaluation. The Honor Unit With Distinction awarded is signified by the Gold Star, which is worn above the right pocket.




Fountain Fort Carson AJROTC Performs a 9/11 Memorial Ceremony

On September 11, 2001, at 8:45 a.m. the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda initiated a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks on the United States. Four passenger airliners operated by two major U.S. passenger air carriers (United Airlines and American Airlines) were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists. Two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York City.


Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110-story towers collapsed, causing significant damage to the World Trade Center complex and ten other large surrounding structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, leading to a partial collapse of the building's western side. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, initially was steered toward Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers.


As a result of this attack, 343 firefighters and 72 law enforcement officers were killed making this the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States. The attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage.


On SePtember 11, 2017, the Fountain Fort Carson JROTC program Honor Guard performed a tribute for the High School by raising the flag to half-staff and asking the school to join them in a moment of silence in respect to our fellow citizens that perished on that day. This ceremony consisted of the JROTC Color Guard, Saber Team and Bugler.

JROTC is designed to teach high school students the value of citizenship, leadership, service to the community, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment, while instilling in them self-esteem, teamwork, and self-discipline.


Our mission: To motivate young people to be better citizens.


Our Purpose: Our curriculum prepares high school students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. The program is a stimulus for promoting graduation from high school, and it provides instruction and rewarding opportunities that will benefit the student, community, and nation.



Collaboration:In the production of this curriculum the JROTC Directorate has incorporated the latest educational theories used in secondary education. National Secondary School standards have been linked to each chapter to show a cross-connection with this curriculum and the standard curriculum taught in high school. Consultants were used to validate the changes. Other commercially available materials have been incorporated and many times the authors of these programs have customized them for the JROTC program.


These organizations and programs are:

Wisconsin Instructional Design System, (WIDS), an educational organization, wrote Competencies and linked SCANS and National Standards.

Student-centered learning techniques from the National Academy of Integrative Learning, Inc. (NAIL) have been incorporated in the lessons and instructor preparation materials.

The National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) also uses Dr. Dunn’s lesson format, and provides all material for the High School Financial Planning Program (HSFPP).

Winning Colors (WC) by Stefan Nielson and Shay Thoelke of Aeon Communications, Inc., has been used in schools and corporations as a present time behavioral observation indicator that is readily understandable.

Unlocking Your Potential (UYP), a youth motivational program from Edge Learning Institute, Inc, is incorporated in many lessons and is used as additional elective material.

Chief Justice, the author worked closely with the JROTC to add this active learning program that addresses the judicial branch.

Prevention of Sexual Harassment, by Will Interactive, Inc., was developed for the Army to create an awareness of sexual harassment in a unit. It is available for use by the Junior ROTC cadets at the discretion of the Junior ROTC instructors. It emphasizes the importance of Army values.

Student-centered learning techniques from the National Academy of Integrative Learning, Inc. (NAIL) have been incorporated in the lessons and instructor preparation materials.

The lesson format is an accepted standard and was provided by Dr. Steven Dunn, author of Brain Compatible Learning for the Block. Dr. Dunn provided training to curriculum work groups and writers and assisted the in the review of the lessons.

Written Communication for Sergeants, developed by Susan Hughes is an excellent resource for students to learn writing skills and to prepare for the written portion of the SATs.

The Success Profiler, is integrated in this Program of Instruction in cooperation with the Conover Company. It is designed to measure and improve emotional intelligence.

You the People (YTP), has been incorporated into the program and the author has worked with the writers to integrate the process into the lessons. Additional materials are also provided.

Interactive Nights Out 2, produced by Will Interactive, Inc., is integrated into the Drug Awareness lessons.

Lions-Quest is a comprehensive, values based, program that focuses on a positive prevention approach and a broad range of life skills that can be consistently taught and reinforced. Lions-Quest Service Learning is a teaching strategy that facilitates skills-based classes and the successful execution of a service-learning program.
