National Honor Society
The National Honor Society is a nationally affiliated honors organization which recognizes students on the basis of outstandingcharacter, scholarship, leadership and service. Sophomores are eligible for provisional membership while juniors and seniors can attain full membership. A cumulative average, beginning with the freshman year, of a 96% is the grading standard. Students also perform additional community service above the school requirement. Prospective candidates and members are expected to remain free of demerits and disciplinary violations.
The National Honor Society students are called upon throughout the year to participate in service projects such as the four annual blood drives, the Men’s Day of Prayer, and the Women’s Day of Prayer.
Every spring, there is an annual induction ceremony of new and current members in conjunction with the Mu Alpha Theta math honor society. Our membership boasts approximately one third of the junior class as well as one third of the senior class. Membership in the National Honor Society is a privilege, with expectations attached.
The motto of the national organization is “Noblesse Oblige” which means “nobility has its obligations.” In keeping with the Biblical teaching from Luke 12:48, “Much will be required of the person entrusted with much…. ” National Honor Society members are called to live the Gospel message by emulating Jesus in daily life.
