    • There are four criteria for selection: Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character. The first criteria, Scholarship, is based on GPA.  If students have at least a 4.50 weighted GPA, I have emailed them to provide more information regarding their Service activities and Leadership roles.  I will also gather input from all of their teachers in order to determine their Character. 
    • Forms are due by midnight on Friday, July 17th. Late applications will NOT be accepted. Students' information will be reviewed by the Faculty Council, and (due to Covid) we HOPE to announce the selection of new members by Friday, July 24th. Notification of acceptance or denial will be conducted via email.
    • We HOPE to have an induction ceremony to celebrate students' achievement at some point.
    • Once membership is determined, we will elect new officers.

    What if I was in NJHS?

    Middle school membership in NJHS has no bearing on NHS membership.


    I have a 4.5 GPS. When will I be invited to join NHS?

    Students are not invited to join NHS until their junior year. Junior students’ GPAs are looked at in April. The students who qualify with at least a 4.5 GPA are invited to join. We review the list again when school starts the following year.  Upon review of the list, newly qualifying students are invited to join. Students are invited to join NHS because of their GPA, but they must complete an application 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 4.5 GPA, that students must meet in order to graduate with NHS honors.
