Academic achievement is part of it, but the National Honor Society (NHS) is much more than a “hall of fame” for high schoolers with at least a 3.0 GPA.
NHS is a coming-of-age, holistic learning experience, and the Connections Academy® Resource Hub provides insights, ideas, and tips to help students develop the full spectrum of qualities that NHS looks for in prospective members.
The organization encourages young leaders with a heart for service and commitment to personal growth to build upon those emerging qualities and prepares them for success in college, careers, and life through rigorous leadership, personal development, and scholarship programs.
For 101 years, the NHS has helped teenagers build their foundation for adulthood on four “everyday” pillars of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Highlighting NHS membership on a college portfolio tells a story that admissions committees love to hear: This is a highly motivated, highly dedicated student who is driven to succeed.
