National Honor Society

The National Honor Society is the leader among organizations that promote recognition of high school students who demonstrate outstanding accomplishment in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.  Throughout the school year, members of the Bishop John J. Snyder Chapter of National Honor Society participate in monthly meetings, academic gatherings, and service to the school and community.

At the beginning of the school year, juniors and seniors who have a cumulative, weighted GPA of at least 3.75 are invited to apply for membership.  Each candidate will complete and submit a Student Activity Form for review by the Faculty Council.  The Faculty Council then submits recommendations to the principal for final approval.

A 3.75 GPA must be maintained through graduation.  If a member’s GPA falls below 3.75, the member will be placed on probation. A senior member whose GPA is below 3.75 at the end of the final quarter will not receive NHS designation at Senior Awards or at graduation.
