The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.
Attention Juniors and Seniors who are interested in applying to the National Honor Society for the 2018-2019 school year. (If you were inducted into NHS your Junior year, you do not need to apply again – you’re already in!)
Here are the basic requirements:
Scholarship: Students must have at least a four-semester (after sophomore year) or a six-semester (after junior year) 3.50 cumulative grade point average. [Starting with the Class of 2021, the minimum cumulative grade point average requirement will be 3.75.]
Service: Prior to the application due date of 9/14/18, students must have at least 15 hours of volunteer service within the school or community dating back as far as April 1st of their freshman year.
