You will receive an email if you are academically eligible to join the National Honor Society. 

When the 5 member faculty team has made their selections, they will notify students who have been selected to join the National Honor Society the week of January 20th. Membership at the Induction ceremony, January 31st after school is mandatory in order to be a part of the National Honor Society chapter at GCA.

List of Member Obligations:

Membership in the National Honor Society (NHS) is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a high school student. Our chapter has worked hard to bring the accomplishments of outstanding students to the attention of parents, teachers, peers, and the community. Our chapter strives to give practical meaning to the Society’s standards of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four ideals are considered as the basis for selection. No student is inducted simply because of a high academic average. The National Honor Society strives to recognize the total student—one who excels in all of these areas. The standards used for selection are: 

Scholarship: 3.0 cumulative average

Leadership, service, and character: as demonstrated by activities and teacher evaluations

Membership, however, is more than an honor. It is an ongoing responsibility and an obligation to continue to demonstrate those outstanding qualities that result in a student’s selection. Membership also carries a responsibility to the chapter.
