APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS & POINT SYSTEM

Thanks for taking the first step to becoming a member of the Camden County High School National Honor Society.  In order to be selected, a student must fill out the attached application and meet ALL of the membership qualifications.  It is important to know that NHS is not just an academic organization; service, leadership, and character are equally important in the selection and membership process.  The membership qualifications are as follows:

GRADE LEVEL – Students grades 10-11 are qualified to apply for membership.

GPA – Students must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5 weighted (page 8)

LEADERSHIP – Students must exhibit leadership.  Officer, manager, captain, and internship positions will earn each student 2 points per position (page 3).  Membership in a club/organization or holding a job at the time of application will earn the student 1 point (page 4).  Students will also earn 1 point for any award or special honor received while at CCHS (page 5).  Students must earn the following points in order to be considered for membership in the NHS:

9th grade = 5 points

10th grade = 7 pointsTotal = 12 points

11th grade = 9 pointsTotal = 21 points

12th grade = 11 pointsTotal = 32 points

 

CHARACTER – Student’s should submit a minimum of 5 current (school year 2019-20) faculty recommendations.  Distribute the sheet to your current teachers; they will return the evaluation to Mrs. Berkoben or Mrs. Simmons.  Faculty will rate character traits on a 1 to 4-point scale for those students they have had during the current school year (page 11).  Students must receive at least 94% from the teachers who graded them.  The percentage will be calculated as follows:  total number of points earned divided by the total number points possible.

 

SERVICE – Students must show that they have contributed to the community.  Students will receive two points for every five hours of community service they have completed (page 6).   Community service is defined as service rendered to a non-profit organization where no payment is received.   Immediate family members may not serve as supervisors for community service hours.  Students must earn the following points in order to be considered for membership in CCHS NHS:

9th grade =4 points

10th grade = 6 pointsTotal = 10 points (25 hours)

11th grade = 9 pointsTotal = 18 points (45 hours)

12th grade = 12 points Total = 30 points (75 hours)
