National Honor Society is a service organization. In order to qualify for selection, students must meet the GPA requirement. Students are selected based on scholarship, service, leadership, and character.

Teachers, coaches and sponsors evaluate each of the candidates. All of this information is compiled and evaluated by the Faculty Council which consists of five voting faculty members. The Faculty Council selects new members on the basis of the selection criteria.
