How are students eligible to apply for NHS? 

Juniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.8 or seniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 are eligible to join NHS. 

Students must demonstrate scholarship, service, character, and leadership. 

What is the application process? 

Students who are eligible to apply for NHS will be notified via mail and email with the steps to apply. The application consists of a transcript, hours of service and leadership already completed, and an essay. 

Applications are reviewed by an anonymous committee of staff members. There are no requirements for the number of students who can participate in NHS, so if the committee feels a student is has demonstrated the four traits and is ready to participate in NHS, the student will be invited to join. 

What are the hour requirements? 

Juniors must have 40 hours of service to continue their NHS membership. 

Seniors must have 50 hours of service to earn a cord for graduation. 

What do students do once they become an NHS member? 

Below are examples of events NHS students have run and volunteering opportunities they have participated in. Students may need to find additional hour opportunities to earn their hour requirements. These hours can be earned through a number of avenues from volunteering at a local food shelf or humane society to helping elderly neighbors shovel snow.
