National Honor Society

Request a NHS Tutor

Students who are part of the GRACE Chapter of the National Honor Society must complete 10 hours of peer tutoring as part of the GRACE fulfillment of the NHS community service requirement. GRACE students may request a NHS tutor using the Request a GRACE Tutor Form. Your tutoring needs will be matched with an available NHS student by the officers of the GRACE chapter.

National Honor Society Eligibility

At GRACE Christian School, students will be assessed for National Honor Society (NHS) eligibility after the third quarter of their Sophomore, Junior and Senior years.

To become a member of NHS, you must be selected as a candidate by GRACE’s faculty. Eligible students must be enrolled in an accredited school in 10th-12th grades. General eligibility requirements are listed below. To learn more about the GRACE Chapter of the NHS, please read the GRACE National Honor Society Chapter Bylaws. This document includes more details about NHS eligibility and ongoing requirements and includes important dates and deadlines. 

  • Candidates eligible for selection to this chapter must be members of the sophomore, junior, or senior class.
  • To be eligible for selection for membership in this chapter, the candidate must have been enrolled for a period equivalent to one year at GRACE Christian School.
  • Candidates eligible for election to the chapter shall have a weighted minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.7.
  • Upon meeting the grade level, enrollment, and GPA standards, candidates shall then be considered based on their service, leadership, and character. In order to be a candidate for NHS, all community service hours must be up to date.
  • After being notified of their eligibility, students may decide to complete and submit the candidate application to be considered for induction.

In addition to maintaining the standards that earn membership, NHS members attend chapter meetings, perform service projects that benefit their school and communities, and fulfill other responsibilities as required by GRACE Christian School including the following:

  • Chapter community service project. All chapters of the National Honor Society are required to complete a chapter service project each year. At GRACE, we have created the tutoring program to meet this requirement. NHS students are required to tutor other GRACE students a minimum of 10 hours per year. Tutoring must be with a GRACE student, because this service project is specifically for this community. Tutoring siblings will be permitted only if the sibling’s teacher has signed and returned the Sibling Tutoring Confirmation Form. Students must log all hours on the NHS Tutoring Form and have a supervising adult sign off that they witnessed the tutoring being completed.
  • Individual service hours. Students must also complete 10 hours of community service of their choice. This can be additional tutoring if they would like, or they can seek out and fulfill other community service needs. Students log all completed hours on the NHS Individual Service Hour form, and submit to the chapter adviser by the required date. These individual service hours are in addition to the 20 community service hours required of all GRACE students as a graduation requirement.  

Students who consistently fulfill all of these requirements will be allowed to wear the NHS cords at GRACE Christian School’s graduation ceremony.
