Academics is the NUMBER ONE priority in the All For One Battalion.  Regardless of whether you spend a few years or a career in the Army, your degree and your grades will have an significant impact for the rest of your lives. 

As Freshman, you will be immediately teamed up with other students under the mentorship of an upperclassmen Cadet.  This is for Team Building, Transition Assistance, and Academic Tutoring. 

We focus on the whole student, not just the ROTC Cadet.  We have a very different approach than most programs.  We only conduct ROTC classes and Physical Training two days a week for 2.5 hours each day.  This allows our student to maximize their available time on campus for studying, extracurricular activities, sports, part-time jobs, or a personal life.

We also spend one Saturday a month conducting our military labs.  This is a combination of four, two hour blocks that are normally scheduled during the academic week at most schools.  We believe we get much more out of our eight hours once a month all together and our Cadet Performance has proven it.   

 Below is the list of ROTC classes that you will take at Xavier. In order to become an Officer in the Army, you must complete this curriculum and attend Advanced Camp during the summer between your junior and senior year at Fort Knox, Kentucky.
