Bravery is not for everyone. Courage is a prerequisite for someone who desires to lead an integration of gallant hearts. Introducing such valor and audacity to the AISAT community, the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) organization was established in 2012 and Aerospace Cadets of the Philippines (ACP) followed after in 2016. The ACP-ROTC organization is a collaborative effort that was made possible with its partnership with the Philippine Air Force. Moreover, ACP is exclusively for the Senior High School Students in preparation for ROTC.This has been implemented to inculcate to students that one cannot be well educated without discipline.
The organization is currently composed of the following personnel:

When it comes to actions, ROTC-ACP officers have been involved to activities that befitted not for the school but also for the community. They have done charitable acts such as Joint Mangrove Planting and Feeding Program for they believe that everyone has a shared responsibility to address change in the society. On the other hand, the officers underwent DVFB Inc. Training and COQC Training to develop their leadership skills that would be implied being the honcho of their squads.
These organizations develop the youth to acquire the quality of good citizenship that serves as an aid for our country. It’s fascinating to witness that young adults of today are interested in learning basic military forms for them to develop sense of control, respect,and integrity. Not only that, it also helps the students practice camaraderie towards their fellow mates that could test their compatibility despite differences among one another.
You are indeed good examples worthy of emulation. Carry on officers!
