|The National Junior Honor Society is an organization developed to promote high academic standards as a means of ensuring the continuation of democracy and as an instrument for the betterment of the individual and the school. Student membership is based upon sound character, true initiative, and conscientious service.
Baytown Christian Academy was granted a charter from the National Junior Honor Society Headquarters in Washington, D. C. in 1996. Members from the seventh and eighth grade classes are inducted into the National Honor Society in February of each year.
To be eligible for consideration, a student must have a cumulative scholastic average of 90 or better. Scholastic achievement is not, however, the only consideration. The character traits of love, patience, kindness, self-control, and goodness are also of importance. Scholarship and character need to be demonstrated through service to one’s fellow man and leadership of peers. In keeping with these goals, the four cornerstones of Baytown Christian Academy’s National Honor Society are scholarship, character, service, and leadership.
