In the Air Force Junior ROTC program, students learn to be good citizens and great leaders.  A military school provides structure to the students' daily lives; it also helps them develop confidence and self-discipline, both of which aid them in their academic studies. 


At R-MA, we believe in a values-based education.  Our mentoring program and long association with the United Methodist Church help students become young men and women of strong, positive character.  The Air Force JROTC also provides a foundation in this area, as the students learn the Air Force values of Integrity First, Service before Self, and Excellence in All We Do.
