GCS seeks to recognize students with scholarly achievement, who are exemplary in their character, leadership, service and citizenship through induction into the National Honor Society.
It is considered a privilege to be selected to the National Honor Society. But the benefits don’t stop at honor and privilege! Being a member of NHS affords your student opportunity and tools for their future. From scholarships to conferences, and college and career readiness resources, membership has its perks.
Grace Christian School is an active chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) for grades 10-12. NHS inductions are held during the first quarter of the school year.
Scholarship: The prospective member must have a cumulative weighted grade point average of a 3.5.
Character: The student of good character upholds principles of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability, and shows courtesy, concern and respect for others.
Leadership: Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea contributors, dependable, and students who exemplify positive attitudes about life. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school activities or classroom participation.
Service: This quality is defined as having the ability to put the needs of others before oneself. This is demonstrated by having a servant’s heart at school in relationships with both students and teachers, and also by looking to serve the community outside of the school. Potential members are required to have at least 5 hours of community service.
NHS members are accessed an annual fee to help cover membership dues and a chapter shirt. This fee is charged in the Fall for returning NHS members, along with new inductees. Seniors are assessed an additional fee for the purchase of their graduation cords.
