The NJROTC program at Gulf High School is available to students from their freshman through senior years. The NJROTC program teaches self-discipline, self-confidence, promotes citizenship, an ability to lead and motivate others, and builds a well-rounded character. The Naval Science curriculum at Gulf High School can be taken all four years while in school as an elective. It consists of formal classroom training supplemented by orientation visits, competitions teams, and field trips to various naval activities to enhance classroom studies.
