National Honor Society

La Salle Academy is honored to have an established Chapter of The National Honor Society. Membership in the NHS is one of the highest honors awarded to a high school student. Our chapter, established in 1967, strives to promote positive contributions to school and community culture through emphasis on the Society’s standards of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four pillars form the basis of membership selection.
Membership is more than an honor. It is an ongoing responsibility and an obligation to continue to demonstrate these outstanding qualities that result in a student’s selection.
Students in grade eleven will be informed of their eligibility to apply for membership after the first semester. Students who achieve a cumulative, simple grade point average of 90.00 or higher are informed of their eligibility to apply for membership. Those eligible students must decide to pursue membership by submitting all components of the application process. Only those students who complete all components of the application process by the designated due dates will be considered for membership.
