English Honor Society

The English Honor Society recognizes students that have demonstrated excellence and achievement in English. Students who have achieved a cumulative average of A/A- in all of their English course by Junior year, a minimum 3.5 unweighted GPA overall, and a final grade of an A- in all English courses, with no English marking period grade below a B. 
Students must also have sustainable membership in an English related club which requires significant writing on some level or English tutoring  OR completion of or current enrollment in an English Department Elective. 

 **Examples of clubs that meet this requirement include:   Model United Nations, Junior Statesmen of America (JSA), Mock Trial, Quill Club FBLA, VTN, DPS, etc. 

All candidates must be in good standing. Character for membership in these societies adheres to the same policy as the National Honor Society as outlined in the student handbook.
