All students applying for membership must be current and have completed the community service hours required for their grade level at BC High. After initiation into the NHS, all members are expected to provide an important service to the school community as tutors at the Academic Resource Center, as ambassadors at Doors Open and admissions events, and at other titles.
A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 is required of all applicants. Above average, applicants must be a positive presence in their academic classes. They must demonstrate initiative and reliability, work well with other students, demonstrate a strong work ethic and be open to growth.
