The mission of the John F. Kennedy High School NJROTC Cougar Battalion is to develop informed citizens, strengthen and develop character, promote an understanding of their role as citizens in a democratic society and acquaint students with the importance of sea power. The program does not require any military obligation.

By enrolling in this program, student cadets are challenged mentally, physically, and morally, and they develop skills in followership, teamwork, and leadership.

NJROTC Cougar Battalion also offers several after school activities such as Cyber-Patriot (cyber safety), Drone Team, Air Rifle Team, and Orienteering Team (land navigation) competitions, as well as our other teams like Unarmed and Armed Exhibition and Regulation Drill Teams, Color Guard Team, Flag Detail Team, PT Team, Raider Team, and Academics Team.
