In 1921, the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) established the National
Honor Society to recognize and encourage scholastically outstanding high school students. Its
founders wanted to form a society modeled after Phi Beta Kappa, the undergraduate collegiate
The National Honor Society stresses education as a total experience, emphasizing the promotion of
scholarship, along with leadership, service, and character. Members are required to attend the
chapter meetings (offered both before and after school), complete 10 hours of community service for
each year of membership, maintain a 93 cumulative GPA, and uphold the high standards of NHS by
remaining active in organizations and demonstrating positive leadership in all aspects of student life.
The National Honor Society is one of the most widely recognized cocurricular student activities in
American high schools. Furthermore, NHS awards yearly scholarships to outstanding graduating
senior members of local chapters. The NASSP organized this program in 1945, and since then they
have honored hundreds of deserving students with a total of more than $10 million.
Currently the oldest, largest, and most prestigious schoolbased student recognition program in the
country, the National Honor Society is considered the highest honor that can be bestowed upon
students in secondary schools.
