The NHS is a service organization that serves by giving any student tutoring and help with schoolwork. Students are selected to be inducted into the society by the Faculty Council which consists of five faculty members appointed by the principal. The NHS advisor serves as the sixth, ex-officio member of the Faculty Council. This selection process occurs once every school year with the induction of new members at a special ceremony each spring. Candidates and members must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.3 on a non-weighted 4.0 scale. Candidates are also considered on the basis of service, leadership and character. The NHS also earns scholarships through working with the American Red Cross.
