National Honor Society



Membership in the Rome Free Academy Chapter of the National Honor Society will be open to juniors and seniors attending Rome Free Academy. Only those students in the school the equivalent of one semester may be considered for membership.


The academic requirement set by the National Council is based on a student's cumulative grade point average. For determining academic eligibility weighted grades will be used.


In all cases only those students who have a cumulative grade point average of 89.5 percent or equivalent standard of excellence meet the scholarship requirement for membership in the National Honor Society as established by the rules of the National Honor Society and the actions of the Rome Free Academy Faculty Council. These students are then eligible for consideration on the basis of leadership, service, and character.


Membership will never be considered on the basis of grades alone. Even though scholarship may be considered as the most important of the four criteria, selection of members solely on the basis of scholarship would be in violation of the Constitution of the National Honor Society and could result in the placing of the Rome Free Academy Chapter of the National Honor Society in jeopardy.


Students who are eligible scholastically will be notified and told that for further consideration for selection to the National Honor Society Chapter at Rome Free Academy, they MUST complete the Student Activity Information Form.


All faculty members will be invited to make comments on candidates. However, the actual selections will be made by the five appointed members of the faculty council.


The Student Activity Information Form letter will be reviewed by the appointed faculty council, along with any other verifiable information about each candidate. A point system will be used to evaluate candidates.
