An invitation only, nation-wide, academic honors group based on academic performance, community service, conduct and character.
Criteria for Consideration into the Mother Mary Elizabeth Lange Chapter of the NHS:
Unlike the honor roll, which identifies students who excel in academics, the National Honor Society is an honorary title bestowed on those students who demonstrate excellence in SERVICE, LEADERSHIP, CHARACTER, and ACADEMICS.
Through its dignity and uniqueness, Saint Frances Academy continues the legacy of Mother Mary Lange, its foundress. Saint Frances Academy, with faith in God’s Providence, provides relevant educational programs which give all members a sense of their culture by helping students and members of our community, particularly the poor and the neglected, develop and live as respectful and responsible members of God’s family.
