What if I was in NJHS?
Middle school membership in NJHS has no bearing on NHS membership.
I have a 4.0 GPS. When will I be invited to join NHS?
Students are not invited to join NHS until the end of their sophomore year. Sophomore and junior students’ GPAs are looked at in January. The students who qualify with at least a 4.25 GPA are invited to apply to join. We review the list again when school starts the following year. Upon review of the list, newly qualifying students are invited to apply to join. Students are invited to apply NHS because of their GPA, but they must complete an application, submit 10 service hours and be approved by a faculty council in order to be members. GPA does not guarantee membership.
I am a senior in NHS. When will I get my graduation stole?
Stoles are not given to the members until right before graduation. Membership into NHS does not guarantee the privilege of wearing the stole at graduation. Following National Honor Society guidelines, there are requirements throughout the year, such as service hours and maintaining the 4.25 GPA, that students must meet in order to graduate with NHS honors.
