Students are selected through an application process.  To be eligible for membership, students must have high academic standards.  Members must also meet high standards of leadership, service and character.  Selection is made by a faculty council.

Leadership is based on the student’s participation in two or more community or school activities, or election to an office.  To meet the service requirement, the student must have been active in three or more service projects in the school and community.  Character is measured in terms of integrity, behavior, ethics, and cooperation with both students and faculty.

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 honor 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 their beginnings in 1921.
