National Honor Society
Membership in the NHS is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a high school student. Chapters across the nation strive to honor individuals who excel in the four areas of scholarship, leadership, service and character. Students may become eligible during their Junior year provided they meet the criteria noted. Members work independently during their Junior and Senior years to provide service to both the school and community. At least one community service project is organized and completed by all members annually. NHS also supports recognition of teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week, initiates fundraising to support community service projects, and hosts a Red Cross Blood Drive in the spring. Required monthly meetings during AT help to inform members and solicit help to support CHS NHS initiatives.
To be eligible for NHS, students must have junior or senior standing and at least a 3.800 cumulative GPA. All eligible students will receive invitations to apply for membership in the first quarter of the academic year. Applications are then reviewed by the Faculty Council and are accepted or declined based on character, service, and leadership potential. NHS recognizes the total student; no student is inducted simply because of a high GPA. For further information regarding the selection process, please visit the NHS page on the CHS website.Once selected, members must:
- Maintain their cumulative 3.8 grade point average
- Continue to abide by school policies and regulations
- Actively participate in the chapter’s projects and services, including monthly meetings and regular checking of the CHS chapter’s online meeting space
- Commit to 25 hours of community service for an outside organization and 15 hours of community service for CHS
If a member fails to maintain any of the above criteria, he or she will be placed on probation. Members will have one semester to restore their good standing. If a member is unable to do so, he or she will have the opportunity to appeal to the Faculty Council prior to his or her dismissal from the NHS. Once a student is dismissed from the NHS, he or she may not re-apply. For further information regarding disciplinary procedures, please visit the NHS page on the CHS website.
