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.
Since 1960, PACA has served the local and international community of São Paulo as a Christian, American and Brazilian curriculum school. Our education integrates Biblical truth in all areas of instruction to guide the hearts and minds of our students and our academic program allows students to receive two diplomas, American and Brazilian, upon graduation which opens doors for them to study in the best universities in the USA, Brazil or throughout the world.
