National Junior Honor Society

The National Junior Honor Society is a prestigious organization with chapters throughout our country.  St. Thomas the Apostle School's chapter follows their guidelines and requirements for acceptance. Students in Grades 7 and 8 must submit an application to the committee that reviews its contents.  Students must demonstrate examples of service, leadership, citizenship, scholarship and exemplary character while maintaining an academic average of 4s and 5s in all subjects.  December's report card is reviewed for entrance. Honor roll status in Grade 7 is required for at least one trimester for acceptance in Grade 8.

Students must maintain honor roll status to remain in the society.  Students will be put on probation and may participate in the society's activities during this time period. Failure to attain honor roll status the following trimester will result in loss of NJHS membership.

The committee reserves the right to dismiss any student from the Honor Society for infractions regarding behavior, attitude and/or academically related issues.
