National Junior Honor Society

National Junior Honor Society was founded in 1929 to foster leadership and citizenship among middle school students. Membership to NJHS is awarded based on five pillars of the organization: scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship. 

School of the Incarnation invites students in the sixth and seventh grade who have met the academic criteria to apply to the school’s chapter of NJHS.   To meet the academic requirement, the student must have either earned Honor Roll status for both the first and second trimester of this academic year or earned an A (93) average or higher in core subject areas for the first and second trimester of this academic year. Eligible students will receive application packets, typically in late April.  Completed applications are reviewed in May to determine if the five pillars of NJHS described above are reflected in the students’ record, activities and recommendations.  Students who are selected are notified 1-2 weeks later and are required to participate in the NJHS Induction and Cording Ceremony.
