National honor society

The Order of St. George is Blue Ridge School’s chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS), a national organization founded in 1921 for scholarship, service, leadership, and character. NHS has chapters in all 50 states and around the world, where students are recognized for achievement and community engagement.

The Order of St. George recognizes students who are outstanding citizens, who have achieved exceptional academics, and who have a record of service and leadership. The cumulative Blue Ridge School GPA requirement is a 3.75 or 90% or above in all Blue Ridge School classes. Members must be a junior or senior and have attended Blue Ridge for a minimum of 1 year. 
Students who meet the academic requirements are invited to indicate their interest by applying  for membership. Once a student’s application is received, they will be contacted to schedule an interview with the council, after which their candidacy will be reviewed in full for membership.
After initiation, 
  • members must participate in at least 3 community service projects, 1 of which will be organized and facilitated by the chapter;
  • monthly meets are mandatory and times will be determined during the first meeting of the year;
  • annual chapter dues are $10.00 per member.
