National Honor Society
NHS meetings are the first WEDNESDAY of each month at 7:50 in Room C 207.
The NHS is an organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. The NHS honors those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginning in 1921.
The district NHS committee recommends that all base high schools and academies; Aynor High School, Carolina Forest High School, Conway High School, Green Sea Floyds High School, Loris High School, Myrtle Beach High School, North Myrtle Beach High School, Saint James High School, Socastee High School, The Academy for Technology and Academics, and The Academy for the Arts, Science, and Technology; establish a GPA entrance requirement of 3.8 on the SC Uniform Grading Policy.
Because of dual enrollment opportunities and program requirements of Scholars Academy and Early College High School, these two programs will have different GPA entrance requirements. Scholars Academy will have a minimum GPA entrance requirement of 4.25 and Early College High School will have a minimum GPA entrance requirement of 4.0.
All other entrance requirements that are currently used; community service, leadership, character, grade level, and course requirements; will remain the same as they currently exist and decisions on future changes for these criteria are left to the discretion of the individual chapters.
