National Honor Society

MATER DEI CHAPTER

The purpose of the National Honor Society is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in high school students. This is a prestigious national organization.

To be eligible for membership, the candidate must be a member of the senior class, must have a cumulative scholastic average of at least 90 percent, must have documented evidence of a substantial amount of in-school and community service, and must exhibit outstanding leadership through active participation in extra-curricular activities. Upon admission into the National Honor Society, this commitment to scholarship, leadership, character and service must be maintained.

Sophomores and Juniors are eligible for provisional membership based on their previous year’s transcript. Documented evidence of a substantial amount of in-school and community service and leadership in extra-curricular activities are also a pre-requisite for eligibility.

National Honor Society members who exhibit outstanding scholarship, leadership, service and character, may be eligible to be nominated to compete in the National Honor Society Scholarship Awards Program. An ad hoc committee of faculty members, invited by the Principal, will review and select those students who will be invited to join the National Honor Society.
