The National Honor Society is a national organization whose objectives are to "create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage the development of character in the nation's secondary school students". Members attend regularly scheduled monthly meetings, engage in a variety of community service activities, and provide tutoring to members of the high school community.
To be considered for the society, juniors must have a cumulative grade point average of 93 after the second quarter of their junior year. Seniors may also apply after the first quarter of their senior year. Technically, students do not apply for membership in the National Honor Society. Instead, they await a request or invitation to provide information to be used by the local selection committee to support their candidacy for membership.
Students who receive this invitation must complete the information packet and provide documentation of their participation in four areas: co-curricular activities, leadership positions, service activities, and other community activities. This invitation is both a privilege and an honor. Receiving an invitation does not guarantee admission.
