The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.

Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in NHS activities. NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.

CVCHS's NHS Chapter typically accepts applications in September

2020/21 NHS applications will be available online soon! A link to the online application will be available on this website as well as in the weekly bulletin. 

Qualifications for NHS:

  • Submit a fully completed application by the established deadline
  • Maintain at least a 3.5 unweighted GPA
  • Demonstrate scholarship, leadership, service and character both on and off campus
  • Have earned at least 10 hours of community service at the time of application (Please note: This requirement has been reduced due to COVID. Orignally, applicants were required to complete a minimum of 30 hours of service.)
Accepted members are celebrated at our annual NHS Induction Ceremony in November.
