National Honor Society

The National Honor Society was created in 1921 by the National Association on Secondary School Principals to recognize and encourage academic achievement while developing other characterizations essential to citizens in a democracy. Today, the National Honor Society is the premiere nationwide organization for high school students who reflect outstanding accomplishments in the areas of academics, character, leadership and service.The De Sales Chapter of the National Honor Society was chartered in 1961 to recognize those Salesianum students who exemplify the ideals of the National Honor Society.


Membership selection, within the guidelines of the national organization, is handled through the local school chapter. Eligibility is more than just an honor roll. Each local NHS chapter establishes rules which are based upon the student's outstanding performance in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four criteria for selection form the foundation upon which the organization and its activities are built. Below you will find links for the documents in the candidacy packets.
