Candidates must have attained Principal’s Honors two of the three trimesters prior to the annual induction ceremony* which will take place during Catholic Schools Week.
Candidates will also be monitored for excessive tardiness, inappropriate behavior and written warnings. This also includes any I or U on their report card, during each trimester.
Members must maintain the standards of the five pillars of the NJHS. Honor students must maintain Principal’s Honors each trimester to remain a member of the National Honor Society. Members who do not meet this requirement will be put on probation. Members who are excessively late, have received multiple written warnings for inappropriate behavior, or received any I or U on their report card, may also be put on probation. Academic or behavioral probation will be allowed once each school year. If the student does not meet the requirements at that time he or she will be removed from the National Honor Society.
The nomination of each new member to the chapter shall be by majority vote of the Faculty Council. A letter of affirmation must be signed by the candidate and parent/guardian and returned to the NJHS Adviser.
