National Junior Honor Society

Welcome to Ladue Middle School’s chapter! The National Junior Honor Society is an organization whose purpose is to create enthusiasm for scholarships, stimulate a desire to render service, promote leadership, develop character, and encourage good citizenship. We are looking forward to welcoming many new members during the induction ceremony in the spring.

Potential New Members of NJHS

Before the end of January, a packet will be mailed to seventh and eighth-grade students with:

  • a cumulative GPA of 3.8 or above
  • eight or more O’s in citizenship in the first semester of the current school year
  • no I or U Citizenship grades in the first semester of the current school year
  • no needs improvement (I’s) or unsatisfactory (U’s) citizenship grades in the first semester of the current school year
  • no Refocus disciplinary assignments in the first semester of the current school year.

Application packets are due by February 25 to the Welcome Center.

Requirements

Students who are eligible for selection must:

  • Have 15 hours of community service
  • Not have been assigned to BIC or have had an out-of-school suspension during the current school year
  • Complete the NJHS Candidate Form, including the Student Activities Form and Honors and Awards form

If all of the above requirements are met by the deadline stated in the Candidate Form, it will be reviewed by the selection committee. The completion of a Candidate Form does not automatically guarantee admittance into the National Junior Honor Society. It’s never too early to start those community service hours! Get started now, so you do not rush to get them finished after forms have been distributed. Below are guidelines about community service and a list of suggested activities where past and current NJHS members have volunteered.

Service is generally considered to be those activities undertaken by the student, which are done with, or on behalf of, others without any direct financial or material compensation to the individual performing the service.
