National Honor Society


The National Honor Society is a student group that honors academic excellence and integrity, as well as personal involvement in service to our communities across North Carolina.


The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) officially established NHS in 1921. Though many local and regional honor societies existed prior to 1921, no nationwide organization had been founded. Under the leadership of Dr. Edward Rynearson, principal of the Fifth Avenue High School in Pittsburgh, the organization grew from the original Alpha Chapter at the Fifth Avenue School to more than 1,000 chapters by 1930. Equipped with a constitution, an emblem and motto, and a group of dedicated principals as coordinators, the new NHS organization quickly developed into one of the country’s leading educational groups.

NHS will celebrate its centennial anniversary on March 1, 2021. Visit our NHS Centennial page to join the celebration!


Students in Grades 10-12 who are academically eligible to apply for National Honor Society membership will receive an invitation from the Chapter Adviser with a digital application and important due dates.
