  • The Chapter holds weekly meetings, conducts one induction and one senior ceremony per year, and participates in community service and fund raisers.
  • Members are expected to maintain high standards in each of the four characteristics that define the National Honor Society: character, leadership, service and scholarship.
  • If a student struggles in any area, such as getting suspended from school, or having his or her cumulative GPA drop below a 3.0, a letter will be sent informing the student of a possible dismissal from the chapter. A hearing before the Faculty Council may be requested by the student who is facing dismissal. The Faculty Council may grant probation if conditions warrant it. Once dismissed, a student may not be considered for membership again. Otherwise, membership is a lifetime privilege.
