National Honor Society

What is NHS?

Since its inception in 1921, the National Honor Society (NHS) has served as a platform for students to showcase their talents and abilities beyond the traditional confines of the classroom. NHS chapters not only acknowledge students for their outstanding accomplishments but also inspire and challenge them to actively participate in community service. Members of NHS uphold a steadfast commitment to the core values of scholarship, service, leadership, and character, which form the bedrock of each chapter.

Who Can Join NHS?

Eligibility for NHS membership opens after three high school semesters. Sophomores and juniors with a GPA of 3.50 or higher are encouraged to apply. A faculty committee carefully reviews applications, seeking individuals embodying NHS values: scholarship, service, leadership, and character.

Upon acceptance, new members are formally inducted into our NHS chapter during a special service held at our annual Academic Awards Ceremony in the Spring. This induction marks a significant recognition of their commitment to excellence and service within the academic community.
