To be eligible for the National Honor Society, students must be in either their junior or senior year, maintain a 3.5 GPA or higher, have a history of service and leadership and a good discipline record.  These criteria are carefully reviewed by a faculty council who then decide on applicants and inductees.  

As new members of the National Honor Society, the first orders of business the students will take part in are officer elections and finding a worthy organization to donate to next year.  This year, the students have been raising money for the charity Action Against Hunger.
