The National Honor Society is the front runner of organizations and societies that promote appropriate recognition for students who reflect outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership, and service. Thousands of schools are chartered and their chapters are following the Constitution.
College admissions officers often regard Honor Society membership as a valid indicator that the applicant will succeed at the post-secondary education level. The Honor Society member has already exhibited academic acheivement, leadership -- either overtly or silently -- honorable and admirable character, as well as a service that demonstrates that the member is willinh to use talents and skills for the improvement of society.
