National Honor Society

The National Honor Society is an organization that recognizes outstanding students in the areas of academics, character, leadership and service. Boylan High School follows the selection procedures described in the handbook. Junior and senior students' academic records are reviewed to determine those who have a cumulative weighted average of 3.5. Students who meet this requirement are notified and informed that for further consideration for selection to the NHS Chapter, they must complete a Student Activity Information Form. Failure to complete this form and turn it in by the assigned deadline will result in the student's name being removed from the list of those being considered for membership. Faculty members are invited to evaluate the candidates in the areas of leadership and character. When determining membership, school attendance, demerits and classroom participation will be considered as well as extracurricular activities and community involvement. According to the Constitution, students selected must be considered by the faculty to be outstanding in all areas. Membership in the NHS is an honor conferred by the faculty of Boylan Catholic High School. It is not a right earned. Once inducted into the National Honor Society, students must maintain a 3.5 cumulative weighted GPA. With membership comes responsibility. The Chapter is expected to choose one or more major school or community projects for the year. Each member is expected to contribute to these projects, as well as attend scheduled meetings prior to the school day. Individual members also have the responsibility to choose other areas of involvement that meet the criteria of leadership, character and service. Members who do not meet these responsibilities are asked to submit their resignation. More information may be found at www.nhs.usView the NHS By Laws
