Montverde Academy’s National Honor Society has recently inducted its members for the forthcoming 2016-2017 school year. Every spring semester the Upper School’s NHS chapter accepts students applications for membership. All sophomore, junior, and senior students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher – and who have been in attendance at the Academy for at least one semester are eligible to apply. Montverde Academy Faculty Council, consisting of MVA department heads, review and then vote on each of the applicant’s submissions. The Faculty Council decide which students best represent the four core values of the National Honor Society: Scholarship, Service, Character, and Leadership. Applicants must have also demonstrated academic accomplishment, been involved in Academy clubs, and held leadership positions with both the Academy and our local community. New NHS members will be officially inducted during the awards ceremony in May.

The National Honor Society has provided valuable assistance to those in need throughout our Central Florida region. NHS fundraising efforts have also provided support to local philanthropic organizations. This semester, NHS members sold slices of pizza over the course of three weeks in February and March to raise funds on behalf of Unicef.  In total, Montverde Aademy’s NHS raised over $215.00, which was enough money to purchase a “water kit” that contains 20 different water containers, 500 water purifying tablets, and bars of soap. Unicef was chosen due to its international reputation for helping those most in need. Over 90% of donated funds go to the cause, and 10% goes to administrative needs.  The members of NHS at Montverde Academy feel grateful to be in a position to help the needy.
