To be eligible for membership consideration, students must be a junior or senior and have a cumulative grade point average of 3.30 or above as of the completion of the 1st semester of the school year. The phrase “cumulative grade point average” refers to the total academic performance as demonstrated by the grades received by the student only while in attendance at St. Mary’s High School, Storm Lake, IA.

Additionally, potential members must meet high standards of leadership, service, and character. Eligible students will be notified during the 3rd quarter of each school year and will be asked to submit information including their leadership and service experiences. These will be assessed by a Faculty Council appointed by the principal. Character will be evaluated by ratings from all high school faculty members. Scholarship is determined from the student’s grade point average, course load, and participation in the Honors Program.

The above information is reviewed by the Faculty Council and selection is determined by majority vote of the council as directed by the National Council. New members are announced and inducted at the annual NHS induction ceremony which is held in the 3rd or 4th quarter of each school year.
