National Honor Society



Cumberland Christian School

National Honor Society
Chapter Rules and Policies
  • To honor students who are consistently achieving at a high academic level, exemplifying Christian character, and participating in co-curricular activities
  • To record on student transcripts a nationally recognized honor society, an honor which will be a positive indicator to colleges and future employers

The following criteria will be used in selection to the National Honor Society.  If these criteria are not maintained once the student has been inducted into the National Honor Society, the student would be removed. Standards are being raised to a minimum 92% GPA.

  • Selection will be limited to juniors and seniors.  A transfer student would have to be enrolled in CCS for one full school year before becoming eligible for the National Honor Society unless that student was a member of the National Honor Society in his/her former school.  
  • The student must have a minimum cumulative GPA (Grade Point Average) of 92% at the end of his/her 10th grade year.  A student who does not have a 92% at the start of his/her junior year may become eligible if his/her cumulative GPA is raised to 92% at the end of his/her junior year.
  • The student must not be on social probation.
  • The student must have been satisfactorily involved in two (2) or more school co-curricular activities while in grades 9-12 with at least one activity per year for two years. We allow a student to be currently in one, but one co-curricular activity must have been completed already. Co-curricular activities are non-graded activities such as a varsity sports team; however, activities such as choir, in which grades are given but there is also outside service, are included. Yearbook, drama, and SAO are included.
  • The student will be required to write a testimony of his/her salvation and current spiritual life. He/She must be able to demonstrate the development of a positive Christian testimony/character and must be approved by the high school principal.  
  • The official National Honor Society advisor for CCS would be the high school principal or his designee.
  • A permanent file will be kept containing the name and the date of induction of each student into the National Honor Society.  A notation of this achievement will be placed on the student’s permanent record.
  • The induction will take place each year in November.  New inductees will receive a certificate as well as the official National Honor Society pin.
  • Before a student is removed from the National Honor Society, a committee made up of the high school principal, the high school guidance counselor, and the student’s homeroom teacher would review the case.  If that student is reinstated and at a future time is removed again, it would then become a permanent removal.
