National Honor Society information for the Class of 2022 (current juniors)

Candidates will begin the application process in late February of junior year. Please see the section on Criteria for Selection for more information. You will be notified before the February break if you have met the 3.55 GPA requirement to submit a packet. Forms will be posted at that time as well. 

Service Requirements During Covid-19 -- Classes of 2022, 2023, 2024

Due to the multiple restrictions in place because of Covid-19, the community service requirement is being reduced by 20 hours. Instead of 60 hours total, students will need to document 40 hours by September of their senior year. The expectation prior to Covid was that students were earning approximately 20 hours a year for their first three years of high school. This reduced service requirement will be re-evaluated prior to the summer, when many students earn their hours (but it will not be increased). Also, please see "service" under Criteria for Selection for more information.

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 Ms. 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.

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. (update 10-28: please see above regarding service hours)

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

See "Criteria for Selection" for details.

 

When

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.
