Selection Process

Step One: The NJHS faculty advisors send out eligibility letters to all 7th and 8th graders who have a cumulative GPA of 90% or above.

Step Two: Students complete Student Activity Information Form (SAIF) and provide two teachers with teacher recommendation forms.  Students are responsible for ensuring that all forms are returned by the deadline as set by the faculty advisors.

Step Three: The faculty council reviews SAIF and teacher recommendation forms.  The council, by majority vote, determines which students are selected for membership to the chapter.

Step Four: Candidates who have actively pursued membership receive letters mailed to their homes advising them of the decision. Any student wishing to appeal the council’s decision must do so, in writing to the principal, within 72 hours.

Step Five: Induction Ceremony, held in Community School Gymnasium.
