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 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.
