Membership in the National Honor Society is based upon excellence in four areas:
The National Council of the National Honor Society establishes the procedure by which the Faculty Selection Committee chooses the candidates for induction.
To create an enthusiasm for scholarship
To stimulate a desire to render service
To promote leadership in our community
To develop character in our schools
