Membership Requirements for 2023-2024 School Year

(Incoming 7th graders)

Membership in the NJHS at Charles DeWolf Middle School is open to any seventh grade student who meets all the following membership requirements at the end of the third marking period in 2024: 

  • Has a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.70 in academic (social studies, language arts, math, science and Spanish) subjects, with no grade below a B- in any subject (including cycle classes) for ALL marking periods of the 2023-2024 school year.

  • Demonstrates outstanding scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship.

  • Accumulates no more than six unexcused tardies. Tardies will only be considered excused if a doctor's note is submitted to the School Nurse.

  • Accumulates no detentions related to behavior in violation of the CDW Code of Conduct.

  • Performs eight hours of documented community service from a recognized nonprofit, community,  or education organization from 9/1/2023-5/3/2024.  Please note that there will be no extension of this date.  Students should provide documentation on the organization’s letterhead when submitting their applications in April.

  • Completes at least three marking periods of the 7th grade year at CDW (unless a student moves into district & has been inducted as a member in another district). 

By the end of April, 2024, eligible students will be identified and invited to apply for admission to the NJHS by email.  An email will also be sent to parents of eligible students.   The induction ceremony will be held on May 14, 2024 (subject to change).

Membership to the NJHS is not automatic.  Once a member of the NJHS, if a student’s GPA falls below a 3.7, or if he/she receives a report card grade below a B- in any subject or fails to complete required service or projects, students are automatically on probation.  If any of these infractions occurs again, the student will be dismissed from the NJHS for failing to maintain any of the criteria for selection.  Additionally, students who do not participate in required service projects during the school year, and/or fail to complete the required 16 hours of community service during the school year will be dismissed.

The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier student recognition program.  CDW joins more than 20,000 Honor Society chapters across the nation recognizing outstanding students in the community.
