Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (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 exploring space and an introduction to cybersecurity and technology. The course begins with early astronomy and the basic interest in the universe to include our solar system. Cadets will examine the history of space exploration, rockets/launch vehicles, the coordinated systems required for a successful launch into space, and the effects of space on the human body. Finally, the course outlines the importance of cybersecurity in space and in daily life.

Leadership Education 300 is designed to prepare cadets for life after high school in the high-tech, globally oriented, and diverse workplace of the 21st century. Cadets 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 commanding and teaching lower classmen.

Wellness/Physical Fitness will incorporate the Cadet Health and Wellness Program (CHWP). The CHWP is an exercise program focused upon individual baseline improvements with the goal of achieving an Air Force physical fitness standard calculated by age and gender. Cadets will be given the opportunity to put into practice the wellness concepts that are taught in Leadership Education 100. The goal of the CHWP is to motivate JROTC cadets to lead active, healthy lifestyles beyond program requirements and into their adult lives.
