National Honor Society & National Junior Honor Society

WCA is recognized as a member of the National NHS/NJHS organization, while also promoting it on our local level. We aspire to the National organizations purpose:

"The purpose of this organization shall be to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, to develop character, and to encourage good citizenship in the students of secondary schools."

WCA challenges our students by helping them prepare for the future. NHS & NJHS is more than being on the honor roll -- it is about being prepared for life, for serving, for being an example.

We invite students each year who meet the NHS & NJHS criteria and guide them throughout the year on becoming leaders. It is an excellent opportunity for your student and prepare them for their years beyond WCA.

Students -- How to be considered:

  • Students must have been at WCA for a full semester before they are considered for membership.
  • Membership into NHS is open to qualified freshmen, sophomores and juniors.
  • Membership into NJHS is open to qualified seventh and eighth graders.
  • Minimum GPA requirement to establish eligibility for each society is a cumulative 3.5

Students who meet the scholarship requirement are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership, and character.
