Club Description:
The mission of National Honor Society is to honor students for their commitment to scholarship, leadership, service, and character. As members, students are expected to tutor at least twice a quarter in the Homework Hangout and participate in at least one service or fundraising activity per quarter. 

 

Eligibility Requirements to Apply:
Students who have a 3.5 cumulative, weighted GPA at the end of first semester their junior year will receive an application to apply for membership. There is also a senior application cycle at the end of September for qualified students with a 3.5 weighted GPA.

Students who are qualified in all four areas will then be invited to be inducted into the Society.
