National Honor Society
The National Honor Society (NHS) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) are the nation’s premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school and middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NHS and NJHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character (and Citizenship for NJHS). Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS and NJHS.
RRCA currently has student members in the elementary, middle school, and high school chapters of the National Honor Society. NEHS, NJHS and NHS members go through an extensive application process. Students are invited to apply for membership if they have earned a 4.0 grade point average. The application includes evidence of leadership, integrity, service, and a personal essay response. RRCA teachers provide feedback to the sponsors, and these day to day character observations contribute to the determination of membership. High school students are not eligible to apply for membership to NHS until the spring of their Sophomore year at the Academy.
In April, 2009, Round Rock Christian Academy inducted its first members to the new chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society. Mrs. Andrea Cermak serves as the faculty sponsor for the Elementary NHS.
In April, 2010, the first group of 6th-8th graders were inducted into the RRCA chapter of the National Junior Honor Society. Mrs. Kelly Counts serves as the faculty sponsor for the National Junior Honor Society at the Academy.
The high school chapter of NHS is sponsored by faculty member Mrs. Tiffany Jaksch. The high school members have been involved in service projects including sponsoring food drives for local area food banks.
