Welcome to the National Honor Society at Cor Jesu!

The National Honor Society is an organization of students in different chapters throughout the United States that have high standards of integrity, scholarship, service, and leadership. Cor Jesu’s chapter is a proud organization that reflects these values through its 121+ members. The members of Cor Jesu’s National Honor Society uphold these values by maintaining a 3.5 GPA, doing 10 hours of service each semester, upholding high moral standards through actions, and holding leadership roles in NHS as well as in the school and community. Many of our students go above and beyond these requirements each semester. Cor Jesu’s National Honor Society is an integral part of the school and the community through volunteering, holding events, providing enlightening speaker sessions, and doing lots of behind-the-scenes jobs. Cor Jesu’s National Honor Society chapter is a great example of Cor Jesu’s mission to share the love of the heart of Christ.
