National Junior Honor Society

In the Spring, 2002 St. Paul of the Cross School inducted its first class of graduate members and active members into our school chapter. NJHS is an elite academic and service organization. There are five pillars of the NJHS organization: scholarship, citizenship, service, leadership, and character. Students in grades 6-8 are encouraged to apply for membership in this prestigious organization. To be considered for membership, students must have a minimum 3.0 GPA. A 5-member faculty committee reviews each student’s application for membership and decides on the final list for induction into NJHS. Once a member of NJHS, students must maintain their GPA as well as maintaining good standing with the remaining four pillars. Students serve the society by completing service projects at the following levels: school, parish, local, state, national, and global.

In order to apply for membership to N.J.H.S. students must meet the following requirements:

  • Permission from parents/guardians
  • Approval of Selection Committee
  • Possess and maintain a minimum GPA 3.0
  • Conduct and effort grades no lower that a “B”
  • Participate in school/church related service programs
