The National Honor Society has been regarded from its inception as a concrete way to promote high academic standards, and as an instrument in the betterment of the individual and the school. The National Council granted Central Catholic High School its charter in September 1957. The installation of a National Honor Society Chapter has been one of the many ways which our school has attempted to nurture its most precious of all assets- the intelligence and attitudes of its students.
When the National Honor Society was founded in 1921, the hope was to create an organization that would recognize and encourage academic achievement while also developing other characteristics essential to citizens in a democracy. These ideals of scholarship, service, and leadership remain as relevant today as they were in 1921.
Now more than 80 years later, the National Honor Society has become a prestigious organization, ranking high among administrators, faculty members, students, parents, and residents of the school community. Its reputation for excellence is the result of years of commitment on the part of everyone involved. The National Honor Society is one of the only school organizations that selects who may apply to become a member. Thus, membership is both an honor and a commitment.
