The National Honor Society (NHS), established in 1921, is a recognition program for American high school students who show achievement in scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Students are selected for membership through an established school chapter in secondary public and accredited private schools by a five member Faculty Council. Candidates must meet the chapter’s requirement for scholarship, service, leadership and character in order to be selected for membership. The National Honor Society is indeed an elite group of students who meet and must maintain rigid academic and personal standards. Members take pride in their accomplishments and strive diligently toward their goals of attaining a superior education and of contributing to their school and community.
Crossroads Christian School sponsors one division of the National Honor Society: Senior (grades 10, 11, 12). The cumulative grade point average through the first semester of a school year will determine academic eligibility. A Faculty Council reviews candidates’ information forms and faculty evaluation forms to determine eligibility in the areas of character, service, and leadership. Induction will occur in the second semester. If a student does not qualify in the first semester, he must wait until the next school year before he can again be eligible.
Continued participation in service projects is required to retain membership. Members must also maintain the chapter’s required cumulative GPA.
