NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY GRADES 11 AND 12
The faculty at Fairfield Union, in stressing academic achievement, awards membership in the National Honor Society as the highest honor a student can achieve at Fairfield Union in recognition of his or her academic pursuit.
Those who qualify for the National Honor Society must have achieved the following: A senior or junior must have a 3.30 grade point average at the end of the 7th and 5th semesters respectively. This point average is figured in academic subjects only and is not the same as the grade point average figured by the guidance department for graduation, which includes all subjects the student has taken. In addition, the student must contribute to the school through service and leadership. Also, his/her character is considered strongly. These categories are where participation in music, sports, clubs, other activities and conduct are taken into account.
In the selection of a member, the faculty considers all action contributed by prospective candidates. A member of the National Honor Society may be denied participation or removed for violation of established guidelines.
*Starting with the class of 2017, the new G.P.A. will be 3.5 to be eligible for National Honor Society. *
