National Honor Society
Founded in 1921, the National Honor Society remains the nation's most prestigious organization for recognizing outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, the National Honor Society is an organization of young men and women who have demonstrated excellence not only in scholarship but also in leadership, character and service. Marian High School has had a chapter of NHS since 1958.
In the opening weeks of each academic year, those students who are eligible to be considered for membership are notified; no one may apply on his or her own. Eligibility is determined by the student's academic standing: a cumulative average of 87 throughout his or her high-school career is required. The student then must provide evidence of the other three qualities required for admission to National Homor Society: character, leadership, and service. Membership is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. After submitting the requisite forms, the candidates are voted on by the five-member faculty council, which has sole authority to determine membership. Induction is held once a year in the autumn.
