During the two fast-paced preliminary rounds to qualify for the Academic Bowl Championship, students were tested on their knowledge of JROTC curriculum and current events as they competed online against schools worldwide. The Leadership Team also competed in a live, District competition in January, where they placed 1st against all other JROTC programs in the Lee County School District.

The JROTC Leadership & Academic Bowl is a nationally recognized academic competition created exclusively for JROTC students. By participating, cadets learn the values of citizenship, academic competition, and college opportunity. The competition creates tremendous opportunities for JROTC cadets by allowing them to demonstrate leadership and academic abilities.

College Options Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the academic development of high school students and assisting them with their preparation for higher education. Using academic competitions, college exam study guides, college admissions tutorials and personalized counseling, College Options Foundation has assisted the nation's JROTC cadets worldwide for over a decade.
