The equivalent of JROTC for home schoolers would be to join Naval Sea Cadets, Civil Air Patrol, ACA, or Young Marines (The latter targets upper elem and middle school but does include high school) The programs teach the same basic things as JROTC, usually meet at a church, reserve center, armory, vets hall etc for one weekend a month. They offer numerous extra weekend summer (and other school-break-time activities. They are manned by volunteers but supported by the various service branches. In many cases, they can arrange with the school/school district to get JROTC, PE or general elective credit. The person overseeing the home study may want to review the academic, physical and other activities they are doing.
These programs like JROTC offer credit for E2 or E3 in the various branches for completion to a certain level but incur no obligation to join. Also some units (esp CAP) meet evening rather than weekends but have numeoous supplemental activities.

Yes all you need to do is go do it at your nearest high school im home schooled myself and i got to JROTC at a high school near me all you got to do is contact the officer in charge about getting your child or yourself into the program
Some school districts will allow homeschool students to take some classes in the local schools.
I am aware of one student who was homeschooled, but was in West Anchorage High School AFJROTC and Choir in the early 1990's.
CAP is in every state, and most metropolitan areas and quite a few backwaters. CAP cadets can become mission qualified, and work CAP missions.
Also possible, but not mentioned, are the Explorer Posts of the BSA... some are in fact dual-chartered Sea Cadet programs, and there used to be at least one dual-chartered Explorer/Young Marines unit. Contact your local BSA and ask.
Note that CAP allows starting at age 12, Sea Scouts and YM's also used to start at a similarly young age, while JROTC is high school only.
