About the National Honor Society
The National Honor Society—or NHS—is an organization that recognizes “scholarship, service, leadership, and character (hyperlink to NHS site)” within high school students.
Oak Hill Academy students exemplify the values of the NHS through academic achievement, community engagement, and overall involvement in school. These values were honored through the induction of seven students into the NHS.
How students are selected
To be inducted into the NHS, students must meet the requirements set by Oak Hill’s NHS chapter.
Each NHS chapter can implement their own requirements independent from NHS’s. At Oak Hill, students must
- have a GPA of 90 or above for the entirety of their high school career
- have been attending Oak Hill for at least a full semester.
When these prerequisites are fulfilled, the NHS selection committee then discusses the service, leadership, and character of each candidate.
The candidates who receive a unanimous vote for acceptance are then selected for induction.
Benefits of National Honor Society membership
The NHS offers members different benefits which serve to improve future college applications and academic resumes.
Members are required to satisfy community service hours, which makes a college application more appealing.
In addition, the NHS offers different leadership conferences and opportunities, which helps students develop crucial communication skills.
For those who qualify, the NHS also offers college scholarships.
Oak Hill’s contribution
Oak Hill Academy strives to be an environment where young minds can grow.
