The Greenwich High School chapter of the National Honor Society recognizes students for their exemplary scholarship, service, character and leadership. Membership is a privilege, not a right.

The Basics

Eligible candidates will meet the following criteria:

GPA must be 3.55 or higher by the end of junior year.

Community Service must total at least 45 hours by the packet submission deadline; 15 additional hours can be earned the summer after junior year for a total of 60 required hours. Students with fewer than 45 hours in April of junior year are not eligible to submit a packet. 

Leadership and character must be demonstrated consistently from 9th-11th grade.

See "Criteria for Selection" for details.



Eligible candidates will be notified in February of junior year. Some students will not become academically eligible until June of their junior year. Eligible students must fill out a packet, available on line. Students who meet eligibility requirements at the end of first semester of junior year will have a spring due date for the packet. Students who reach academic eligibility at the end of their junior year in June will have a fall due date. These due dates will be announced when students are notified of their eligibility and students will have approximately 8 weeks to complete the packet.


*The cumulative GPA cannot include modified grades or curriculum.
