National Honor Society

Crossroads Chapter National Honor Society

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, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.

 

Selection Procedures: Students are selected for membership by demonstrating excellence in the four areas of scholarship, leadership, character, and service. Students in grades 11-13 with a weighted GPA of 3.7 or higher and no disciplinary referrals qualify for membership. Applications are due before final exams in the spring.  The faculty council meets once a year to review the nominees and select members. New members are notified in August.

Guidelines:

To remain in good standing, students must:

      Pay $30 in dues
      Maintain a 3.7 GPA
      Complete 15 hours of community service each year (with at least 10 hours being derived from NHS-sponsored events)
      Continue to show evidence of character and leadership (for example, no discipline referrals)
