Madison HS Army JROTC "MADHOUSE"
Welcome to the Madison High School Army JROTC website. The Madison AJROTC program has a long and proud tradition of making new leaders for our community and our great state and nation. Established in 1962 with the opening of the school, the AJROTC program has mentored, coached, and trained students to be leaders, managers, and productive citizens. We strive to create the conditions for success for our cadets specifically, and the entire Madison student family, as a whole. Our programs are focused on physical fitness and academics. As a Physical Education credit, we empower cadets to attain and maintain good physical fitness which leads to better handling of stress and allows students to better mentally focus on school. Although we teach physical fitness routines, we also provide health education so the student can make lifestyle choices for healthier living. We stress academics and leadership and build students to attain life skills that will help them as they leave high school and either start a career or continue their education. Our goal is to make your son or daughter college or career ready as they graduate. You and your child are a part of our success formula and we look forward to working with you and your child's other teachers to make your high school experience one to remember.
