    Who is eligible for NJHS?

    In accordance with national standards set by NJHS, students will first qualify for an invitation through their demonstration of success in the area of scholarship.  Students in 7th or 8th grade with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 on a 4 point scale will receive an invitation to complete a membership packet.  Students will fill out the packet and give examples of their accomplishments in the remaining areas of Leadership, Serice, Character, and Citizenship.  Therefore, just because a student qualifies based on their cumulative GPA (scholarship), they will not automatically be inducted into the NJHS.


    Who chooses inductees into the NJHS?

    After students fill out a membership packet and the required recommendation forms from teachers and/or other adults, all of their qualifications will be reviewed by our Faculty Council.  The Faculty Council is a group of faculty members who make final decisions about who will be invited for induction into the NJHS.  The Faculty Council also serves as the group who determines if a student should be dismissed because of a failure to meet expectations in one of the five areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Character, or Citizenship. The NJHS sponsors do not have a vote on the Faculty Council and will not be making any decisions regarding acceptance, rejection, or dismissal.


    What does an exemplary NJHS candidate look like?

    Scholarship: Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 (on a 4.0 scale), as established by the local school's Faculty Council, meet the scholarship requirement for membership. These students are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership, character, and citizenship for NJHS.

    Service: This quality is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation and with a positive, courteous, and enthusiastic spirit.

    Leadership: Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea-contributors, dependable, and persons who exemplify positive attitudes about life. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.

    Character: The student of good character upholds principles of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability, shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others, and generally maintains a good and clean lifestyle.
