NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
Julius C. Bernstein Chapter
About the National Honor Society:
Founded in 1921, the National Honor Society recognizes outstanding high school students who have demonstrated commitment to four principles: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. More than one million high school students participate in NHS related activities today.
For more information about the national organization, please visit the NHS website. (You can also follow NHS on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.)
Academic Eligibility for Nomination:
- Juniors with a cumulative core weighted grade point average of 3.65 or higher are eligible for nomination* in February of their junior year.
- Seniors with a cumulative core weighted grade point average of 3.65 or higher are eligible for nomination* in September of their senior year.
- Your disciplinary conduct record will be considered along with your academic qualifications.
*Nomination is not "acceptance" to the National Honor Society. It means you are eligible to apply.
If you meet the requirements for nomination, you will receive an email inviting you to apply to the National Honor Society. Invitations to apply will be emailed to your LPS email address in late February/early March for Juniors and at the end of August/beginning of September for Seniors.
If you received an email inviting you to apply to NHS, you must complete and submit the application by the deadline in order to be considered for membership.
The application is your opportunity to tell us about your participation, leadership, and volunteer service in school and community activities. This information will be reviewed by our faculty committee to assist with the fair consideration of your candidacy. Read the directions carefully, and respond completely and thoughtfully. Please type your responses.
Please refer to your invitation to apply email or the application for all deadlines.
