NJHS Induction

Membership in the South Creek Middle School National Junior Honor Society is an honor bestowed upon a student. Candidates are eligible to apply by invitation only after grades have been evaluated. Academic eligibility alone is not a guarantee for induction into the society.

To be eligible for membership in NJHS, a candidate must have at least one semester of grades at South Creek Middle School that show an average of at least a 3.5 GPA for all subjects, including electives.  

Candidates shall then be evaluated on the basis of service, leadership, character, and citizenship. Receiving an invitation to join does not automatically result in being inducted into NJHS. An application form must be filled out in its entirety and evaluated. NJHS students must exhibit these qualities at all times: Character (honesty, integrity, morality, and reliability), Citizenship (attitude, cooperative spirit, effort, and punctuality), Service, and Leadership (initiative, positive influence, dependability, positions of responsibility). Once selected, members have the duty to continue to demonstrate these qualities.

As an NJHS member:

  • Students have the opportunity to attend scheduled meetings. All meetings are held on Tuesdays after school in the Media Center until 4:45pm unless otherwise notified.
  • Members must participate in community service activities during the school year.
  • It is important to understand that once a student has joined, he or she must maintain the same high standards by which the student first qualified. Students who fall below these standards will be placed on probation for the academic quarter. In addition, if the student is not at standard for the second quarter in a row, he or she will no longer be eligible for membership. An academic probation or exit letter will be given to any student who does not meet the requirements set forth.
  • Members who receive in or out of school suspension will automatically be released from the chapter.
  • Students who transfer to South Creek from another school and who had previously achieved membership from that school are automatically considered members of NJHS. A certificate from the previous school is required. As with all members, transfers must also adhere to the same regulations as other South Creek Middle School NJHS members.
