Thank you for your interest in National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). The application process takes place at the beginning of September each year. To see if you qualify, please look at the end-of-year report card from 6th grade for 7th grade entry, or at the 7th grade report card for new acceptance for 8th grade. At the bottom, under the Year-End Averages, add up the numbers for Math, Reading/ELA, Science, and History. Divide that number by 4. If the average is 93% or higher, students may qualify. We will also look at Conduct grades. The application packets are available from NJHS Sponsors at the announced time in September. They are due with 2 teacher recommendations by the announced deadline approximately two weeks after the process begins.
If accepted, there is a $20 membership fee. Students must complete 20 service hours during the school year and another 20 hours of community service over the summer. We meet monthly during school, and meetings will be announced. We look forward to seeing your application in September.
