Students with cumulative GPA of 3.7 will be invited to apply for NJHS during the second semester of their 7th & 8th grade year. Candidates will be notified of their eligibility and invited to formally apply by submitting each of the three components of the application: the Member Information Form, the Student Activity Form, and the Application Essay. An anonymous Faculty Council (excluding the chapter adviser) will evaluate the applications and make the final recommendations on membership for the Carmel Middle School chapter of the National Junior Honor Society.
