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 2023-2024 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:
Students must have at least a four-semester (after sophomore year) or a six-semester (after junior year) 3.750 cumulative grade point average.
Service: Prior to the application due date of 9/11/23, students must have at least 15 hours of documented service in order to apply to NHS. Any service hours earned dating back to April 1st of freshman year count. Service hours include any unpaid service to the school, community, local places of worship, hospitals, national organizations, etc. (Babysitting younger siblings or doing chores for family at home does not count.)
