AFJROTC III is the course for all third year cadets. The course consists of three components: Aerospace Science (40%), Leadership Education (40%), and Wellness/Physical Fitness (20%).

Aerospace Science 300 focuses on exploration of space by covering manned & unmanned spaceflight, along with space technology to include basic orbital mechanics and the operation of rockets.

Leadership Education 300 is designed to prepare students for life after high school in the high-tech, globally oriented, and diverse workplace of the 21st century. Students will learn how to become a more confident financial planner and to save, invest, and spend money wisely, as well as how to avoid the credit trap. They will learn about real-life issues such as understanding contracts, leases, warranties, legal notices, personal bills, practical and money-saving strategies for grocery shopping, apartment selection, and life with roommates. Additionally, cadets will continue to perform Drill and Ceremonies while starting to command and teach lower classmen.

Wellness/Physical Fitness will incorporate the Cadet Health and Wellness Program (CHWP). The CHWP is an exercise program focused upon individual base line improvements with the goal of achieving a Presidential Physical Fitness standard calculated by age and gender. The goal of the CHWP is to motivate JROTC cadets to lead active, healthy lifestyles beyond program requirements and into their adult lives.
