Joliet Central National Honor Society
To qualify for selection to the National Honor Society, students must have a 3.5 cumulative GPA at the end of the first semester of junior year to fulfill the scholarship cornerstone of NHS.
Students who meet the GPA requirement will receive notification in the spring of their junior year - usually at the beginning of March. Students who choose to apply to the National Honor Society should attend this meeting where applications are distributed.
Successful applications reflect a history of active participation in at least two services to Joliet Central High School. Students have many options for fulfilling this extracurricular requirement including competitive IHSA sports as well as a variety of service oriented clubs. Clubs must organize and execute at least one service activity in order to qualify for the service requirement.
In addition to the scholarship and service requirements, students must also receive favorable ratings for leadership and character. All teachers, support staff, deans, guidance counselors, club sponsors, and coaches have the opportunity to rate a student for leadership and character. It is imperative that students who wish to apply for selection to the National Honor Society develop and maintain positive relationships with all members of the Joliet Central High School community.
Once students are selected to NHS, they have the opportunity to participate in many of the longtime Joliet Central NHS traditions like induction, our annual blood drive, the NHS vs faculty basketball game at the winter sports assembly, male poms at the spring sports assembly, rockathon, and the SWSC annual National Honor Society Day of Service.
