Academic Honor Societies
National Junior Honor Society
The National Junior Honor Society is an academic club that is by invitation only. The Holy Redeemer Chapter of the NJHS inducts members in the spring of each year. Students in the second semester of seventh and eighth grade are eligible for membership. Membership is an honor bestowed upon students who are outstanding in scholarship, character, leadership, citizenship and service. The minimum conditions for eligibility require at least two full semesters of attendance at Holy Redeemer, a cumulative GPA of 95.0% or higher and a good disciplinary record with no N or U on the Archdiocesan report card. In accordance with NJHS policies, submitted applications are reviewed by a Faculty Council for determination of acceptance.
Following application and notification of acceptance, a formal induction ceremony is held at the school to recognize all newly-selected members. Once inducted, NJHS members are expected to maintain the same high standards for which they were selected. Membership responsibilities include regular attendance at chapter meetings and active participation in individual and group service projects.
