New Braunfels Christian Academy welcomed 35 charter members of the newly-formed National Honor Society (NHS) chapter during a February 2011 Inaugural Induction Ceremony. The purpose of our chapter is to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, stimulate a desire to render service, promote leadership and develop personal Christian character.

Membership is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors who have attended New Braunfels Christian Academy for at least one semester and meet the required standards in four areas of evaluation: scholarship, service, leadership, and character.


A student must have a high school cumulative grade point average of 3.7 or 90%. The students meeting the scholarship criteria are invited to complete a Student Activity Information Form (distributed at an announced meeting for eligible students only).

Leadership & Service

The completed Student Activity Information Form provides the Faculty Council with information and a history of the candidate’s leadership, extracurricular, community service and employment experiences.

Membership Requirements

Members must complete a minimum of 12 service hours per semester, to include both chapter and individual service projects. Chapter Service Projects will be selected by the chapter to meet the following criteria:

  • to fulfill a need within the school or community,
  • have the support or the administration and the faculty,
  • be appropriate and educationally defensible and
  • be well planned, organized and executed.
Maintaining Standards

NHS members are required to maintain the same level of performance in all criteria that led to their selection, including scholarship, service, leadership and character. Those members who fail to meet these requirements may be dismissed from NHS.
