National Honor Society

The National Honor Society was founded in 1921 with the idea that the main goal of high schools was “to make to the greatest contribution to the American ideal of democracy.” Once established, the National Honor Society aimed to encourage scholarship and service, promote worthy leadership, and aid in the character development of high school charter members.

The Avon Grove Charter School Chapter inducts new members in the fall of each school year. Students who have completed the ninth grade with a minimum GPA of 3.5 or higher are eligible to apply. Letters of Invitation for Application to the NHS are sent home at the end of school year and NHS Applications are returned in early September. These applications are reviewed by the Faculty Council with regard to
the student’s demonstration of all four pillars of scholarship, leadership, service and character.
