8/27/2019 ANNOUNCEMENT:

Regulations have changed for NJHS. Please look at the updated Regulations in the NJHS Application Process!


“National Junior Honor Society - Grades Seven-Eight”  Regulation 664-3 and Regulation 664-4 have been revised to bring them into alignment with current language and practice. Note that substantive changes include:

  • The inclusion of previously absent details related to the membership selection procedures;
  • More detailed language related to student membership requirements;
  • Revised faculty evaluation forms that align with those currently used at the high school level;
  • Revised GPA to national minimum of 3.0; and
  • Included FERPA statement for records maintenance.

A Message to New Applicants...
See the file section below to find EVERYTHING you need.  The application is the only thing that is due at this time. 

The Participation Contract and the Faculty Rating forms, are for your informational purposes only.    

The Teacher Recommendation form is included IN the application... it is different from the faculty rating form... the faculty rating form is the rubric used to evaluate applications.  

You need to make sure that teachers who you're asking to recommend you are equipped with examples of activities that you've done in each of the pillar areas where they are being asked to rate you.  You should provide them with a list of activities as well as a description where necessary. 

**Remember, teachers need a week to be able to have adequate time.  YOU are responsible for collecting the SEALED recommendation with their signature across the back.**

Please see me with any questions... We are looking for professionally filled out applications (no pencil) that LOOK like a lot of time, effort, and thought went into completing them.

Thank you,
Mrs. Geyer
