Scholarship - The national minimum standard for scholarship shall be a cumulative scholastic average of at least 85 percent, B, or 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or the equivalent standard of excellence. Candidates shall then be evaluated on the basis of service, leadership, character, and citizenship as demonstrated by activities, teacher recommendations and evaluations. (Please note that a child may not have any N's in conduct. Our process is cumulative from the first semester of 6th grade. After it is determined that a child meets the grade and conduct expectations, then a faculty council completes the screening process. Finally, when a child meets all these steps, they are invited to join the National Junior Honor Society.)
