Academic Honor Societies

Academic achievement is highly valued at St. Rose. We encourage all students to work hard, and we honor those who have achieved academic success, and who also demonstrate a quality of character, through membership in academic honor societies.

The National Honor Society

The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.

Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.

At St. Rose over 70 students have earned membership in NHS. Along with meeting rigorous academic standards, these students are involved within the St. Rose community through their tutoring program and service hours. Their reach also extends to the community at large through their sponsorship and hosting of two successful blood drives each year.

The World Language Honor Society

The World Langauage Honor Society was created to recognize the achievement of St. Rose students in the study of a language: French, Spanish or Latin. Students who have successfully completed two years of a world language while maintaining an average of 94 or better are invited to join this exclusive group.

The World Language Honor Society organizes and operates a very active one-to-one tutoring program for fellow students throughout the school year, and also offers midterm and final exam review sessions on each examination day.

There are currently 37 members of the World Language Honor Society who are dedicated to the study of world cultures and to helping their classmates.
