National Honor Society

The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize 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 its beginning in 1921. Membership in the National Honor Society is highly selective, and is based on Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character. 

Our Aurora Chapter of the National Honor Society provides service to St. Edmund Prep and the greater community.  Members of the NHS participate in a weekly peer tutoring program within the school, SEP's annual Street Corner Gourmet project, coordinate an annual Easter Egg Hunt for the lower grades of St. Edmund Elementary School, holds fundraisers to raise money for Breast Cancer research during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, and conduct other service projects throughout the year. 

NHS Membership Requirements

Junior and Seniors who have a cumulative GPA of 90 or higher will be invited to participate in the NHS application process, which includes completing an information packet and being interviewed by two members of the Faculty Advisory Committee.  The Faculty Advisory Committee makes all decisions regarding membership.  New members and their families are invited to attend the annual Induction Ceremony in October.
