Excelsior Chapter of the National Honor Society

3_kids_outside.jpgMembers are ”selected” by the faculty of the school through the Faculty Council.  Individuals do not apply for membership but rather submit information via student activity information forms for use by the Faculty Council in determining membership.

Membership therefore, is an honor bestowed upon an individual, and thus a privilege, not a position for which one applies nor to which one is elected nor a right of any individual. Membership is based on scholarship, leadership, service, and character.

To be scholastically eligible an individual must have a GPA of 88 or better after 8 consecutive quarters.  The individual is notified of eligibility and may, if he or she wishes, submit the activity information form for membership.

Those individuals selected are notified and an induction ceremony takes  place with family and friends invited to attend.
