Welcome to the NHS Page at SCHS!
General NHS Membership Requirements:
  • Have a cumulative 3.50 GPA.  Mrs. Scurti will check GPA's upon submission of applications, and anyone without a 3.50 GPA will not be eligible for admission and their application will be voided.
  • Activity involvement in at least 4 extracurricular activities as a Sophomore , and 6 as a Junior : these can be sports, youth groups, or any volunteer positions over an extended period of time. They are also cumulative, so being on the football team for three years would count as three activities. These cannot be paid activities.
  • 3 positive teacher recommendations
  • No violations of the student code of conduct or academic integrity agreement
More Information on “Activities” that count towards induction: 
Each applicant must meet the required number of extra-curricular activities: 
Current Sophomores:  4 activities
Current Juniors:  6 activities
Each activity should be done in a group setting and should meet for approximately 40 hours.  These activities are cumulative, thus involvement in a sport for both your freshmen and sophomore years counts as two activities.  You must have all information for your activities for them to count.  
Community Service that counts toward NHS: 
  • Membership in school clubs or sports teams
  • Member of an organized sports team outside of SC
  • Summer camps that meet the minimum requirement
  • Key club is one activity
  • Non-Paid babysitting 
  • Church related activities, such as Youth Group or serving in another ministry on a regular basis count as one activity, not multiple activities
  • Membership in community clubs
  • Non-Paid Music lessons or performances
  • Participation in an activity that has an official organization associated with it.
  •  If there is ever a doubt, check with Mrs. Scurti first!
Service Activities that do NOT count toward NHS:
  • Any activity that does not have an official organization associated with it.
  • Activity where the student earned money 
  • Activity where the student earned school credit (Ex: Student Mentor, Ed. Careers) 
  • Voluntary landscaping/janitorial for relatives or friends
  • Activities not run by an adult IE: working out at Lifetime
  • Dividing up Key Club volunteer activities
  • “Double Dipping” activities:  some examples include using cheerleading camp as one and cheerleading as a separate activity.  These would fall under the same activity.  Using Youth Group as one activity and soup kitchen as another activity.  If you work the soup kitchen with the Youth Group, then they are the same activity.  
  • Any Activity that does not meet regularly. 
  • Tutoring a friend without approval
  • Working in a parents’ classroom or place of employment if being paid
  • Internship hours if earning credit for school
