It is an honor to be chosen for membership in NHS, an organization that recognizes honor students in American schools throughout the United States and the world. New members are selected by the faculty and inducted into the society in May. In order to be chosen for NHS, a student must demonstrate a fine record of scholarship, character, leadership, and service to others. The minimum GPA requirement is 3.5 and students become eligible at the end of their sophomore year. Students must maintain a 3.5 average throughout high school and must attend PACA from grades 8 -12 for one full year before being eligible for NHS.
