To be considered for National Honor Society a student needs to meet all of the following criteria:
1. Is a junior or senior in good standing.
2. Has a GPA of at least 3.5 weighted.
3. Has a GPA of at least 3.0 unweighted.
Students who meet these requirements will have an application given to them, likely by their first period teacher, before the end of September.
Once a student has completed and submitted an application by the deadline, a five-member principal-appointed faculty committee reviews each application and considers each applicant based on the following national standards in the four areas of evaluation: scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
Students who are invited to join the National Honor Society will be notified via invitation to join standing members for the National Honor Society Induction Ceremony. Invitations will be distributed in October. The induction ceremony will take place in November.
Once inducted, members are required to maintain or improve their academic and disciplinary standing. They are also required to complete a mandatory 16 hours of documented community service each semester and participate in four National Honor Society projects (beach clean-ups, fundraisers, new-student orientation, canned food drive) each semester.
