NHS Induction and College Book Awards

The National Honor Society (NHS) elevates a school's commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four pillars have been associated with membership in the organization since its inception in 1921. SJP follows suit with upholding these pillars by creating enthusiasm for scholarship, stimulating a desire to render service, promoting leadership, and developing character in secondary schools.

The NHS requirements at SJP are the following:

  • Have and maintain a GPA of at least 3.6
  • Be enrolled in at least one honors or AP course 
  • Complete 10 hours of community service
  • Participate in NHS group service projects 

Congratulations to all of our new, returning and graduating members of NHS!
