National Honor Society
Inclusion in the Academy of Notre Dame de Namur Chapter of the National Honor Society is offered to junior and senior students who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.90 for four semesters (juniors) or six semesters (seniors). To be included in NHS, students must also demonstrate leadership, scholarship, service and character, be active in at least three activities/sports, and live the spirit of the Honor Code.
For 2013 -2014, the National Honor Society officers are: President: Amrita Sukhavasi, Vice President: Emily Young Carr, Treasurer: Katherine Schneider and Secretary: Grace Desjardins.
Members of the Academy of Notre Dame Chapter of the National Honor Society give back to the school in many different ways. Our members help out as greeters in Harron Lobby during study periods to welcome guests to our school. Some of our senior members are Writing Fellows who work in the writing center helping other students with assignments. Throughout the school year, a number of NHS members will tutor students in the library as a part of our NHS Peer Tutoring Program. Students who are inducted are also encouraged to volunteer to represent our school as guides on Experience Notre Dame Day, Open House and Back to School Night.
