weird, I was just looking at their online cj degree last week

Liberty University is planning to open a state-of-the-art shooting range on campus next fall as part of the conservative Evangelical Christian School’s commitment to promoting gun ownership and firearm sports.

University president Jerry Falwell Jr. said that Liberty’s new complex will feature pistol, rifle and shotgun facilities as well as an archery range built into the mountainside of the 7,000-acre campus near Lynchburg, Va. Falwell said the project will result in one of the most expansive firearms ranges on any U.S. college campus. The blueprints call for at least $1 million in construction and landscape improvements that will provide new opportunities for student clubs and athletic teams.

“This is one of the examples of how Liberty is unique and different,” Falwell said in an interview. “We really had the perfect setting for our own competitive shooting range.”

The shooting range will be the latest high-tech addition to a campus that already features a year-round snowless ski and snowboard center, an indoor ice-skating rink and an equestrian facility.

One of our local high schools still has a shooting range in the basement and they have a shooting team, it's technically a private school but the town pays the tuition for the locals to go to it instead of having their own. Taxes are extremely high in the town.

My high school had a JROTC program (one year was required for all male students) 

and of course the school had a rifle range 
and everyone in the program was required to learn to shoot as part of their grade 

and the JROTC had a Rifle Team that competed against other JROTC programs in other high schools 

that was many years ago 
I have no idea if its still the same

Our HS has JROTC, I think they still have to qualify but it is through the local armory I believe.
