2019 editable Word file NHS application. 


“Being a part of the National Honor Society for the past two years has been a true honor. Getting on NHS isn’t an easy process, but it is definitely worth taking the time to apply. It helps to show applicants how they apply themselves to the four pillars of NHS which are scholarship, leadership, community service, and character. Members of NHS should uphold themselves to the highest standards and be strong role models for those around them.” ~Dana K.

Tentative NHS Timeline:

  • 3rd week of September: All junior and senior students who are academically eligible for NHS (3.33 GPA or higher) receive their Student Information Forms.
  • 1st week of October: Student Information Forms are handed in to the NHS adviser. 2 nd week of October: All high school teachers fill out a teacher comment sheet on all students who have indicated interest in NHS. (See Teacher Comment Sheet to the right.)
  • 3rd week of October: NHS Faculty Council receive and review Student Information Forms and teacher comments for each student. Then, Faculty Council meet to discuss and vote on each student.
  • 4th week of October: All students who indicated interest in NHS will receive a letter in the mail informing them whether they have been granted NHS membership.
  • 1st week of November: In-school assembly honoring NHS members
  • 3rd-4th week of November: NHS Induction Ceremony

*A few things to note: The faculty council is a rotating committee of 5 high school teachers who remain anonymous. The adviser does not cast a vote in the faculty council meeting. There is no set number of students that make NHS. There is no set percentage either. The council votes largely on the student information form and the comments from all of the teachers; therefore, the number of members vary each year.
