  • Hey National Honor Society Members! We have a meeting this Thursday at noon. We will be using the Google Meet Link located in the NHS Google Classroom. Please remember that your attendance is mandatory. Contact Mrs. Tate if you have any concerns.
  • We are excited to announce that Xenia High School will begin registering Rising 9th, 10th and 11th graders for Air Force JROTC in February for the 2021-22 school year.

    Air Force JROTC provides leadership training and an aerospace science program for high school students. Secondary school students who enroll in the AFJROTC program are offered a wide variety of curricular and extra-curricular activities. The program explores the historic and scientific aspects of aerospace technology and teaches high school students self-reliance, self-discipline and other characteristics found in good leaders. The AFJROTC program is open to 9th-12th grade students. The program is not a recruiting tool for the military services and those students who participate in AFJROTC do not incur any obligation to the Air Force.

    The objectives of Air Force Junior ROTC are to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship and life skills; promote community service; instill a sense of responsibility; develop character and self-discipline through education and instruction in air and space fundamentals and the Air Force’s core values of “integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do.”

    Classroom study includes the heritage of flight, principles of aircraft flight and navigation, human requirements of flight, development of aerospace power, aerospace vehicles, rocketry, space and technology programs, and the aerospace industry. Students are also introduced to military customs and courtesies, citizenship in the United States, first aid, wellness, health and fitness, basic drill and ceremonies, effective communications, management, human relations, and life after high school. All uniforms and curriculum materials are provided by the Air Force.

    Cadets will participate in many outside activities such as field trips to military bases, aerospace facilities and industries, museums, civilian airports and other areas related to aerospace education.

    Cadets also participate in parades, leadership laboratory activities, drill team competitions, color and honor guards, military balls, and honorary academic groups and community service events.

    Any student that wishes to participate in this exciting program and receive elective credit should register in February. If you have question please contact their counselor or Master Sergeant Worstell for more information.
  • Attention National Honor Society Members. Please mark your calendars. Our Next meeting will be held on Thursday January 21 at noon. The meeting will be held via google meets. Please be sure to have signed up for the NHS Google Classroom. Please contact Mrs. Tate with any questions.
