National Junior Honor Society

We are thrilled to have become a chapter member of the National Junior Honor Society.  Membership in the NJHS is one of the highest honors awarded to a middle school student.  Our chapter strives to give practical meaning to the Society's standards of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship.  These five pillars are the basis of selection.

Membership is more than an honor.  It is an ongoing responsibility and an obligation to continue to demonstrate these outstanding qualities that result in a student's selection.

Students in grade seven will be informed of their eligibility for membership after the first semester.  Students who achieve a cumulative weighted grade point average of 90 or higher are informed of their eligibility for membership.  Those eligible students must decide to pursue membership by submitting all components of the application process.  Only those students who complete all components of the application process by the designated due dates will be considered for membership.

The 2017-2018 induction ceremony will be Wednesday, May 30th beginning at 7:00pm.  Inductees will need to arrive for 6:30pm.
