National Honor Society
The St. Charles Catholic chapter of the National Honor Society recognizes students who meet certain standards in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. After the completion of a semester, students who have maintained at least a 3.5 GPA (with no C's) for two consecutive nine weeks periods are invited to apply for membership. After completing an application acquiring two faculty recommendations, the students are evaluated by the Dean of Students and all submitted materials go before the NHS Faculty committee.
Although one's GPA is a large factor in a student being admitted into NHS, service and leadership are where the organization truly thrives. Past service projects have included working with Habitat for Humanity, assisting with Bingo at LaPlace du Bourg, and raising money and supplies for its the “Santa Paws” Drive that benefits the St. John Parish Animal Shelter, and teaming up Riverside Academy's Beta Club in a collection of canned foods for the needy of the parish.
