Candidates are notified based on certain GPA requirements after sophomore year. A cumulative weighted GPA of 3.75 over freshman and sophomore years must be maintained to qualify. Your GPA does not guarantee you will become a member of NHS here at SBHS. NHS members adhere to upholding the four pillars upon which NHS is based: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. Selection of members will be determined by the Faculty Council and will be based on the candidate’s ability to show that they possess all the qualities related to the four pillars.
If you choose to apply you have three options to access the informational packet:
Print off the information packet found under the National Honor Society webpage on Swansboro High School’s website located under the “Identified Candidates” tab.

The information packet will give further instructions and directions that should be reviewed carefully and in their entirety.
Candidates must complete the NHS Candidate packet and HAND IN to the office by Wednesday, August 17th at 2:30 PM.
If you have questions please contact Ms. Griffin via email.
