  • Faculty Council measures each applicant against four characteristics of NJHS

  • Faculty Council then votes on each application

  • Successful applicants are directed to attend a meeting for information about next steps, including required service projects

  • Applicants who complete service projects are invited to be inducted at a May or June ceremony.

 

When can I join NJHS?
