National Honor Society Criteria

 

The Honor Society chapter establishes rules for membership that are based upon a student's outstanding performance in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.  These criteria for selection form the foundation upon which the organization and its activities are built.

Scholarship: Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 85 percent are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership, and character.

Service: This quality is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation and with a positive, courteous, and enthusiastic spirit.

Leadership: Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea-contributors, dependable, and persons who exemplify positive attitudes about life. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.

Character: The student of good character upholds principles of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability, shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others, and generally maintains a good and clean lifestyle. A candidate must have no recorded incidents of cheating or intentional dishonesty. Disciplinary records such as those for cutting classes or of knowingly violating school regulations are considered during the application process. Instead, a candidate must be willing to assist classmates and staff, as well as to support ethical, acceptable behavior in all situations.

Eight Weeks of College and Career Guidance – One Topic at a Time

The Locust Valley High School counselors are introducing eight weeks of college and career counseling that will prepare sophomores and juniors for the college and career exploration and application process in an easy-to-follow format.

Assistant Principal Michelle Villa said that thinking about all that needs to be done for college applications can be overwhelming. She and the high school counseling team have broken down the tasks into small chunks, making the information easy to follow.

“We have a lot of information to share, and by spreading it out over eight weeks, it feels more manageable,” she said. She further explained that each week would focus on a theme, from how to register for college admissions tests to applying for financial aid and scholarships.

Videos, presentations, interviews and links will be shared each week for students and parents to view. Often, step-by-step instructions will be shown. For example, during week one, high school counselor Jaimie Dickstein shares a video on how to register for the SAT and ACT. She breaks it down from logging on to what type of photos are acceptable to upload.

“The information we are sharing is important and we want to make it as easy as possible for students to follow,” Ms. Villa said. “We hope that by the end of the eight weeks, students will not only have a knowledge base for what to expect, but that their anxiety about this topic will be lessened.”

Each week’s content will be emailed through February and March. Topics, in order, will include SAT/ACT, finding the college that fits best for you, career exploration, how to stand out in the admissions process, the college application, the college visit, financial aid and scholarships, and advice from current and former students.
