The Application Process

National Junior Honor Society Eligibility
National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is an organization to create enthusiasm for scholarship, stimulate a desire for service, to promote leadership, to develop character, and to encourage good citizenship in eighth grade at Saint Andrew Catholic School and in the community. To be invited into this society, a student must be identified as academically eligible for consideration. Eligibility is determined by a student’s seventh grade cumulative grade point average, which must meet or exceed our chapter’s standards for scholarship currently set at 93%. Students who meet the academic standards are invited to apply at the beginning of their eighth grade year.  In addition to the academic standard, membership in NJHS is also based on standards of service, leadership, character, and citizenship.
To be selected as a member of NJHS, students must complete a candidate application form. The application is reviewed by the chapter advisory board comprised of five teachers and an administrator. Admittance into National Junior Honor Society is based on a rubric point system. If a student meets or exceeded these standards, he/she will be accepted into the chapter.
