Honor Society

NHS

The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Character, Scholarship, Leadership, and Service. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since it began in 1921. 

Membership in the National Honor Society is based upon scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Membership eligibility will be reviewed in the spring semester of each school year. Candidates are eligible for membership selection after three full-time semesters and must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.50. Their eligibility will then be considered on their service, leadership, and character. A five-member faculty council will select members from the candidates who demonstrate outstanding performance in service, leadership, and character.

*** Requests to be considered are made by submitting a completed Informational Form and Informative Essay reflecting their qualifications and accomplishments. Hard copies of student submissions are due to your Advisor by the end of the school day Thursday October 7th, 2021.

I pledge to maintain high scholastic standing,

To hold as fundamental and worthy an untarnished character,

To endeavor intelligently and courageously,

To be a leader and to give of myself freely in service to others.

In so doing, I shall prove myself worthy of a place in the Compass Junior Honor Society.
