Eligibility is based on a student's GPA. During the 1st Marking Period, eligible students are invited to complete an activities form detailing how he or she participates in school and community organizations, leadership roles, and service (sports, clubs, scouts, religious organizations, volunteer services, etc.). Student responses are then considered for acceptance into NJHS. The faculty council also seeks information from current and previous teachers regarding the quality of the character and performance of the students under consideration. Students who are selected for induction will receive a letter informing them of the ceremony.
