NATIONAL JUNIOR HONOR SOCIETY (Grade 8 Only)
If 8th graders have made High Honor Roll (4.0) or Honor Roll (3.0) for all 4 quarters of 7th grade and the first 2 quarters of 8th grade they will be academically eligible for admittance into the National Junior Honors Society.
Students who are eligible will be notified after 2nd quarter grades are finalized and published. Students will then be informed of the remaining requirements for admission.
Each chapter is required to publish its qualifications for membership, which is based on the five pillars of NJHS:
Per national guidelines, at a minimum, students must have a cumulative GPA of 85, B, 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent standard of excellence. (Each school chapter is allowed to require a higher cumulative GPA.)
This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.
Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.
The student who demonstrates citizenship understands the importance of civic engagement; has a high regard for freedom and justice; respects democracy; respects the law for all citizens at the local, state, and federal levels; and demonstrates mature participation and responsibility in activities such as scouting, community organizations, or school clubs.
Students who meet the scholarship requirement will have an opportunity to complete a form detailing their accomplishments in and commitment to service, leadership, character, and citizenship.
