National Honor Society for Class of 2020

Invitation Letters to Eligible Juniors Will Be Sent in Mid-February

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.

This site offers a description of the criteria for entrance into the Greenwich High School National Honor Society. If you still have a question after reading through the site, please send an e-mail to Arianne Haley, the National Honor Society Adviser:

The Basics

Eligible candidates will meet the following criteria:

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

Starting with the Class of 2016, Community Service must total at least 60 hours by the start of senior year (the community service requirement has been reduced from 90 to 60 hours to be more in line with area high schools).


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

See "Criteria for Selection" for details.



Eligible candidates will be notified in the spring of their junior year after first semester. 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 will have a fall due date. These due dates will be announced when students are notified of their eligibility and students will have approximately 5 weeks to complete the packet.
