National Honor Society

What is the National Honor Society?

The Marist High School Chapter of the National Honor Society has been an academic tradition for many years. Students inducted into this prestigious group are held to the highest standards of character, service, leadership, and scholarship. Students are inducted at the end of either their sophomore year or their junior year in a special induction with the current NHS members present. Throughout their junior and senior years, each NHS class elects an executive board from the senior class, creates and carries out service projects, and maintains a successful tutoring program.

Membership Requirements

Students are invited to apply to Marist's Chapter of the National Honor Society when they earn a cumulative grade average of a 90 or above by either the third quarter of their junior year or their sophomore year. If a student decides to accept the invitation, they are given an application which asks them to detail their experiences with activities and service both inside and outside of the Marist community. Students also write an essay explaining their personal character. After the application is complete, a selection committee, led by the current moderator, interviews the students. Students are notified of their acceptance by early May and the induction ceremony takes place shortly afterwards. If a student is not accepted as a sophomore, they may be invited to apply again at the end of their junior year.

NHS Accomplishments for 2016-17 School Year

During the 2016-2017 school year,a spirited and talented group of young men and women formed the current NHS chapter.  Earlier in the year, the group decided that their theme for 2017 would be Community Outreach.  The group even came up with a new slogan for the theme: Marist U-Knighted.  They hope to find opportunities to make themselves known in the community and to grow as an organization of rising leaders.

On an academic scale, the NHS continued the tradition of running a tutoring program in the Library Media Center and academic study hall.

In terms of service, the current NHS created a partnership with the Magnificat Home, a local women’s home, in Jersey City. During the winter break, NHS members actively served in the home by cleaning, delivering baked goods, renovating the home, and pampered the women by painting their nails and conversing with them about their unique lives. NHS will be returning as individuals and small groups to extend the willingness to serve and the love of the Marist Community.

Officers and Members for 2016-17 School Year

The newest members of the NHS were inducted on May 16, 2016. The class is eager to leave their mark on Marist High School.
