Student Military History Tours 


Scholastic Journeys creates quality custom group tours for JROTC focused on American military history. Our Nation’s Capital and nearby areas offer sites and examples of the rights and benefits of being an American citizen. See first-hand the service and sacrifices generations of Americans have made to protect and preserve these rights. Cadets will learn the significance of historic monuments, events, and the story of freedom they signify.


JROTC groups experience the qualities that make a great officer; leadership, good citizen, service, and sacrifice. Our tours are led by current and retired members of the military or reserves—based on availability. JROTC cadets gain a multi-faceted view of the importance of America’s military and the role in creating and maintaining The United States we live in today. Tour ideas include:
