• National Honor Society (NHS) 

    Mr. McCarthy, Advisor (dmccarthy@octorara.org)



    Octorara's chapter of the National Honor Society is open to students in grades 11 and 12 with a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or better. Students meeting this criterion are encouraged to fill out a student information form for the faculty committee to review. Membership decisions are based on the demonstrated scholarship, character, service, and leadership of the student. National Honor Society activities are generally aimed at providing a service to the community and raising money for charitable causes. Examples include the Empty Bowls Event in cooperation with the Octorara Area Food Cupboard, Family Fun Night, and the annual blood drive.  NHS students have also been involved in coordinating the homecoming pep rally and are in the process of planning Octorara's fourth annual Mini-THON event.  

    Applications for induction in the 2019-2020 school year will be due to Mr. McCarthy in room C216 on or before Thursday, September 19th, 2019 (deadline 3:00pm) and decisions will be announced in early October.  Click the link below to view and/or download the application.  Printed copies of the application are also available from Mr. McCarthy in room C216.  Be sure to read all directions carefully.
