The purpose of the National Junior Honor Society is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, stimulate interest in community service, promote leadership, develop character and encourage good citizenship. These five ideals will be considered as the basis for selection as well as a fundamental part of our chapter activities. No student is inducted simply because of high academic average. The National Junior Honor Society strives to recognize the total student—one who excels in all of these areas.
Students chosen to be inducted into the Saint Peter School Chapter of the NJHS will be expected to:
∙ Maintain a cumulative GPA (6th-8th Grade) of at least a 93
∙ Participate in all NJHS meetings (1-2 per month during activity period)
∙ Complete 10 hours of individual community service per year (June-June)
∙ Participate in the NJHS Chapter community service project
∙ Demonstrate leadership, good citizenship and character at Saint Peter School and in the community.
∙Candidates and members must not have a discipline record and must maintain an S in conduct
We are very proud to offer our students the opportunity to become members of this prestigious organization and very proud of the students who excel in all of these areas!
