When the National Junior Honor Society was founded in 1929, the hope of the National Association of Secondary Principals was to create an organization that would recognize and encourage academic achievement among middle school level students while also developing other characteristics essential to citizens in a democracy. These ideals of scholarship, character, service, citizenship, and leadership remain as relevant today as they were in 1929.
Now, nearly eighty years later, the National Junior Honor Society has become a prestigious organization, ranking high among administrators, faculty members, students, parents, and residents of the school community. Its reputation for excellence is the result of years of commitment on the part of everyone involved.
Through NJHS chapter service activities, members maintain and extend qualities that won them selection. Membership is thus both an honor and a commitment.
All Saints School is committed to the mission of the NJHS. Seventh and eighth grade students are considered for induction into the organization. Requirements for selection and bylaws of the All Saints School National Junior Honor Society can be found in the following document.
