According to the JCHS World Language Department, NJCL Latin Honor Society induction matters because it shows prospective colleges and employers that a student values high academic achievement and has maintained proper citizenship. Colleges typically value language honor society induction because they are eager to accept students who challenge themselves and succeed in meaningful courses.

“The pursuit of classical training and studying Latin and understanding Greco-Roman civilization and history are all wonderful pursuits to which my students have a great commitment,” said Dr. Christopher Trause, Coordinator, World Languages Department. “This is one of the good things and somewhat exotic that our students do here at the high school.”

The Latin Honor Society membership is earned annually based on student performance. The Honor Society registration opens on Dec. 1 and ends on July 1.
