In 1967 the National Junior Honor Society was formed at Blessed Sacrament School to complement and encourage high scholastic ideals in the students as well as ideals of leadership, character, service, and citizenship. Induction takes place during Catholic Schools Week each year and is open to members of the seventh and eighth grades.
To be eligible for membership as a seventh grader, a student must have an 86 in every subject for grade six and the first two quarters of grade seven.
An eighth grader must have an 86 in every subject for grade seven and the first two quarters of the eighth grade. Conduct, work habits, and the achievement of AR goals will also be used for consideration. In addition to these requirements, participation and leadership in school and outside activities are also required.
Active members are reviewed periodically and must maintain the high standards of the society. Members are required to maintain an 86 in every subject and to live up to the ideals of the NJHS. Members meet on a monthly basis.
The decision for membership in the National Junior Honor Society is made by the Faculty Advisory Committee after careful study and consideration.
