National Honor Society

Important Announcement:
2020-2021 National Honor Society (NHS) Information


"Due to the restrictions placed on New Jersey from the current world wide pandemic, the NHS committee is in the process of amending the NHS application for the 2020-2021 school year. Eligible juniors and seniors, with a Cumulative Weighted GPA of a 3.6 or higher, should check their emails throughout August as they will be receiving an invitation to apply, as well as the Google Classroom Code to obtain the application documents from the NHS advisors, Mrs. Liguori and Mrs. Verderami.



Membership in this prestigious national organization is based on demonstration of outstanding levels of scholarship, leadership, character and service. Students who are eligible will be invited to apply for membership in the fall of their junior or senior years.

 

The initial eligibility requirement is a weighted GPA of 3.6 or higher and qualified students will be notified of their eligibility and invited to submit an application. These candidates then go through an extensive review process. Performance in the areas of service, character and leadership is evaluated by a faculty selection committee. In addition, a thorough review of discipline records and faculty feedback is conducted. Each candidate's performance in all four areas must be judged to be outstanding.

Once inducted, members must maintain their academic performance, continue to provide leadership, demonstrate excellent character, and provide service hours toward the school and community in approved NHS activities. Failure to meet these expectations will result in a review of the student's membership and possible dismissal from the program.

A Mandatory meeting is held for all candidates to review the application process and answer all questions in mid October. During that time the advisors will examine and clarify what community involvement qualifies in the categories of community (volunteer) service and leadership.

The minimum recommended service hours for a junior invited to apply is 80 (at a not-for profit organization)

The minimum recommended service hours for a senior invited to apply is 120 (at a not-for profit organization)


Meetings dates will be detailed in a September mailing.
