Membership in the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a St. Francis Xavier School student. The NJHS works hard to bring the accomplishments of outstanding students to the attention of parents, teachers, peers, and the community. Students are eligible to apply to the National Junior Honor Society beginning in the 6th grade if they have a 90 or above cumulative average and are then evaluated by faculty and staff as potential members of NJHS through their demonstration of the five pillars:
No student is inducted simply because of a high academic average. The NJHS strives to recognize the total student; one who excels in all of these areas. Once inducted, students remain members until graduation as long as their adherence to NJHS bi-laws is in good standing.
