National Honor Society

The National Honor Society is a national organization in which membership is by invitation. Students may apply for membership, but a faculty committee must review each application. National Honor Society is often regarded as a valid indicator that the student will succeed in life and particularly in studies at the post-secondary level.

There are four main purposes that guide the chapter of NHS:

  1. To create enthusiasm for scholarship
  2. To stimulate a desire to render service
  3. To promote leadership
  4. To develop character in the student

NHS Membership Requirements

The required grade point average is 3.5. Each member must offer 20 hours of service over and above the hours required by the school. A member must show leadership and good character. These are standards to be admitted to the National Honor Society and are conditions for retention in this honor society.
