National Honor Society
All sophomores, juniors, and seniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.3 and higher will be invited to apply for membership into the St. Patrick Academy Chapter of the National Honor Society after the first semester grades post each academic year.
The NHS Adviser is responsible for identifying those students invited to apply. The Faculty Council, comprised of faculty and staff serves as a consultatory group to the NHS Adviser. The Council is also responsible for reviewing all applications to determine each student’s acceptance into NHS.
Criteria considered are scholarship, leadership, service, and character, the Four Pillars of the NHS. Those that are chosen for membership based upon their completed applications will participate in an induction ceremony in the spring, and families will be invited to attend.
To remain in the NHS in good standing a student must maintain a 3.3 cumulative GPA for his/her high school career. Members who fail to meet any membership criteria will be reviewed by the Faculty Council for consequences up to and including dismissal.
