You must be academically eligible for consideration for membership in the National Junior Honor Society. Eligibility is determined by your cumulative grade point average, which must meet or exceed our chapter’s standard for scholarship currently set at a 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, at the end of the 1st semester.
In addition to the scholarship standard, membership in NJHS is also based on standards of service, leadership, character, and citizenship. To be selected as a member of NJHS, you must demonstrate on a Mt. Dora Middle School NJHS Membership Application Form and through the evaluations submitted by the faculty, that you have met or exceeded these additional standards.
NJHS membership is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a student at our school. Your membership also carries a responsibility to the chapter. If our chapter is to be effective and meaningful, each member must actively participate. There will be club meetings, school responsibilities and service projects to attend. There will also be an ANNUAL membership fee of $15.
