Sachem High School East

Honor Society

Requirements to be selected for the National Honor Society are listed as follows:

ACADEMICS:
All members must have an overall weighted 90 average, as well as quarterly averages that are each a minimum of 90 weighted and must have at least a 90 weighted average in the majors. Again, these are minimums and will not be rounded up. In addition, no student may have any course or regents failures.

ACTIVITIES:
Students must have a minimum of two school-based extra curricular activities during the current school year (athletics and/or clubs). Any honor society club, for example Foreign Language Honor Society, will not fulfill this requirement. Non-school based activities will be considered on an individual basis; however, such consideration is not a guarantee of acceptance to fulfill this requirement.

SERVICE: (minimum of 30 hours --you must provide Documentation of said service)
Verifiable community service means the pursuit of altruistic volunteerism or helping others without any profit or benefit to you or your group. If you have questions about your community service, please see an advisor. Please note: any community service associated with your two above listed extra-curricular activities will not satisfy this requirement.
