The purpose of the National Junior Honor Society is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, stimulate a desire to give service, promote leadership, develop character, and encourage citizenship. For those who are willing to use their talents and skills to improve society, NJHS can make a positive difference in the lives of individuals and the spirit of the school and community.


  • A national organization, established in 1929, that recognizes outstanding middle level students who demonstrate excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
  • A chance for the faculty council to bestow membership upon academically eligible individuals who have displayed outstanding character, leadership, service to school and community, and citizenship.
  • Membership is a privilege not a right of students.
  • A co-curricular activity that actively supports the educational goals of the school.
  • An opportunity to involve chapter members in significant learning experiences, especially in the area of service
  • Extra-curricular (it supports the established curriculum and is not ‘outside’ the influence of the curriculum)
  • A “junior” program of the National Honor Society. NJHS exists as a separate and independent organization from its sister group, (NHS).
  • An honor roll (MORE factors are considered in the selection process than just grades)

NJHS prides itself on developing productive citizens who focus on student leadership and performing school and community service. Through giving service, members learn that it is important to give back and get involved. By holding to these principles, NJHS members improve the quality of their school, community, and world.
