The selection process usually begins in February. Teachers, staff, and parents are asked to nominate students. Prospective members need to be seventh graders with a cumulative GPA of 92.0 or above in their CORE classes (math, science, social studies, and language arts.) Grades will be pulled once and these will be the grades considered for eligibility. The nominees should also exhibit strong qualities in the four primary principles of the NJHS: Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character. Nominations are collected on the announced due date and no late nominations are accepted. Any student that meets the minimum 92.0 grade point average is notified of their nomination and a meeting is held where the application process is explained and the application is distributed. The deadline for application submission is announced at this meeting. Teacher evaluation forms are considered part of the application. A few days later, the students that turned in a complete application are notified of their interview time. Interviews with the selection committee are scheduled over two days. The selection committee votes on which members to admit to the honor society.
