National Junior Honor Society

National Junior Honor Society torch

The National Junior Honor Society was established by the National Association for Secondary School Principals (NASSP) in 1929. The principals involved hoped to create an organization that would recognize and encourage academic achievement while also developing other characteristics essential to citizens in a democracy. These ideals of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship remain as relevant today as they were in 1929. In fact, as we prepare future leaders for our global society, the opportunity to support these ideals becomes even more important.

Membership in NJHS is both an honor and a commitment. It is this commitment that has helped shape the Honor Society’s reputation for excellence making it a valued asset among administrators, faculty members, students, parents, and communities.
