Frequently asked questions

Letters of invitation for those who meet the academic requirements of our Chapter are sent out in the 3rd quarter.  From there, interested invitees complete a Candidate Packet for further consideration for membership.

Potential 7th grade candidates must have a 95% over-all average in all classes for their first semester of 7th grade.  Potential 8th grade candidates must have a 95% over-all average for at least one full semester.

Potential candidates have the opportunity to list their forays into school and community leadership roles, service activities, extracurricular activities, and notable recognition and awards.  Teacher recommendations are also sought and submitted by each candidate.

NJHS performs community service and helps focus on the importance of academics and community involvement.  Our chapter works to grow and build the leadership and citizenship characteristics of its members.  Monthly workshop-style meetings, quarterly service projects and high academic behavior expectations are all part of an NJHS Members experience.
