    • Selection Process The selection process involves a thorough evaluation of each student. To be admitted, students must exceed the ideals of leadership, character, and service listed.
    • Each faculty member completes an evaluation form on each nominee.
    • The 5-member faculty council, and the NHS Adviser, evaluates each student using the faculty evaluations and the Student Information Forms.
    • A majority vote by the 5-member faculty council is needed for a student to be admitted.
    • It is possible that a student may not be admitted due to average or low evaluations of character, leadership, or service. The selection committee looks for students who meet or exceed the high standards listed.
    • Average scores, even from honor roll students, may not result in acceptance.
    • Students who are denied admission are informed on their low scoring areas. They may then work to improve in those areas and may reapply senior year.
