Much of the rich tradition of excellence and leadership at TMI rests with the Corps of Cadets, founded with the school in 1893. Designated as one of the highest ranked Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) programs in the country, this optional program uses a military structure to develop leadership skills. The Corps is open to all students in grades 6-12. Each year, approximately 30% of TMI students are cadets. General of the Army Douglas MacArthur is TMI’s most famous graduate; other former cadets include bishops, Congressmen, university presidents, and other servant leaders in communities throughout the world. Values emphasized through the Corps include integrity, dependability, self-discipline, commitment, respect, and loyalty.
