Potential Member Information

NHS Membership Application Criteria

As a society of excellence, our members hold with great esteem the society's four pillars of Character, Scholarship, Leadership, and Service.
  • Sophomores and Juniors who have a cumulative GPA of 3.60 by the end of the first semester will receive a letter inviting them to complete an NHS membership form.
  • With the membership form, candidates for NHS will submit verification of 18+ hours of service. The service must be the service of presence and have been performed at any of the NHS approved agencies between June 1, 2018 and February 22, 2019. Hours must be recorded on x2Vol and a transcript printed out. Service must be completed by the end of the school day on Friday, February 22, 2019.
  • Participation in three activities that meet regularly (two of which must be SLUH-related).
  • SLUH faculty members will evaluate the character of those candidates who submit the membership forms for the current school year. The Assistant Principal for Academics will evaluate each candidate for violations of academic integrity for the current school year. The Assistant Principal for Student Life will evaluate each candidate for discipline history for the current school year.

Application Process

  • The SLUH Faculty Council will evaluate the candidate membership forms and faculty/administrator evaluation forms to determine if each candidate fulfills the requirements for membership. The NHS moderator is not involved in the voting process. The selection or non-selection of NHS members is finalized by the SLUH principal.
  • Letters informing candidates of this decision will be sent late March.
  • Induction of new members will be held on Sunday, May 5, 2018 at 2:00pm.
