National Junior Honor Society
The NJHS at Assumption School is a highly selective honor society that promotes appropriate recognition for its students who reflect outstanding accomplishments in the areas of:
6th*, 7th and 8th grade students who have been at Assumption for the two most recent consecutive quarters and meet the minimum cumulative middle school Grade Point Average (GPA) requirement, currently set at 3.800**, are eligible to receive an invitation to complete the NJHS interest packet during 3rd quarter of each school year.
Invitations to complete an interest packet will be sent in January to those who have met the 3.800 cumulative middle school GPA minimum. Interest packets must include a guardian signature, be complete, and submitted by the deadline to be considered for membership into NJHS.
In addition to academic excellence, selection for membership is based on exhibited leadership, honorable and admirable character, and service to the school and community. Selection for membership is conferred upon students by an anonymous Faculty Council and based on review and assessment of the candidate’s completed interest packet and review of the student’s records. New members will be inducted during an annual ceremony that takes place near the end of 3rd quarter.

*For our inaugural 2019 NJHS cohort, only 7th and 8th grade students who meet minimum GPA requirements will be eligible to complete an interest packet.
**For our inaugural 2019 NJHS cohort, GPA for 16-17 and 17-18 school years will be calculated by averaging the final year letter grade of these core classes: science, ELA, social studies, religion, and math, rounding to the nearest thousandths. GPA calculations starting in the 18-19 school year will be quarter letter grades in core classes, with no weight given to midterms or finals. The candidate’s middle school cumulative grade will be the the average of those GPAs to the nearest thousandth.
