A Minimum Requirements for Consideration

Students must fulfill the below requirements in order to be considered in the selection process for National Honor Society. The Faculty Council, which is comprised of five faculty members, will use the Selection Rubric in the consideration process. The Faculty Council will review each student's demonstration of the attributes of Character, Leadership, Service, and Scholarship as outlined the Official National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society website.

Induction Candidates and Membership Renewal

Starting with the 2014-2015 school year, students who were inducted in the Spring of 2014 are considered as members of the National Honor Society into the following school year. In order to maintain their membership, these students will submit the same forms as the prospective inductees.

Submitting the NHS Online Form

Starting at the beginning of January, the NHS Induction Candidate/Membership Renewal Form will be available online and will be linked to this website. Using their BPS Google accounts, students will apply digitally. They will also be required to upload their Community Service Log and Signature Verification Form to their Google Drive accounts and then hyperlink them within the online form. 

Selection Process

Membership is determined by a five-member selection committee comprised school faculty members called the Faculty Council. They will review and assess the students' forms using the Selection Rubric.


The students who are admitted by the Faculty Council into the National Honor Society for the first time will attend the Induction Ceremony in April. Family, friends, and other members of the community are encouraged to attend this event. Students who exhibit dedication to service by volunteering for 75 hours or more in one year will receive a special distinction as an Outstanding Volunteer.
