What is CJSF?  CJSF is a statewide organization founded for the purpose of fostering high standards of scholarship, service, and citizenship in the middle grades. CJSF emphasizes service to the school and the community while creating pride in scholastic achievement.

Who is eligible for membership?  Seventh and eighth grade students who qualify with the appropriate grades are eligible. Seventh graders will be eligible starting 2nd semester.

What are the academic requirements for CJSF?  The requirements to join CJSF are simple. Because it is a scholarship organization, 7th and 8th grade students earn points based on their grades. An "A"=3pts; "B"=1 pt; and "C"=0 pts. Students must earn 16 points total for the semester. Qualifying courses are Math, Science, English and History. Students who have a D/F in any subject will not qualify for membership for that semester.

Donation:  A $10.00 donation would be greatly appreciated to help cover the cost of California State affiliation membership dues, member certificates, pins and field trips.

What is required for school/community service?  Students are required to complete 5 hours of volunteer service per semester. These hours need to be broken down as a minimum of 2 hours at school and 3 hours in the community. Tutoring, coaching, volunteer work with other community groups can all be counted. Any service that is not compensated and helps others qualifies. The goal is for members to balance their high academic achievement with public or school service.

What are the benefits of CJSF membership?  Students who qualify for 3 or more semesters will promote 'With Honors". They will receive a CJSF gold pin, a certificate with a gold seal, and they will be accepted as an Associate Member in CSF (the high school California Scholarship Federation). Membership brings with it the opportunity to participate in activities which benefit the school, the community, and the student. Activities will include fundraisers; service projects (tutoring, school supply drive, food bank, etc.) and possible field trips.
