National Home School Honor Society Chapter

Chi Mu: Fort Worth, TX

Purpose

The purpose of the Chi Mu chapter of the National Home School Honor Society is to recognize and encourage scholarship among home school students and to help foster integrity in students through leadership, community service, teamwork, and scholarship. Chi Mu strives to provide opportunities for the development of these traits.

Home School Requirement for Membership

For membership in the National Home School Honor Society, at least 50% of a student’s studies must be completed in a home school setting under the direct supervision of a parent or guardian.

Age/Grade Requirements for Membership

For membership in the High School Chapter, a student must be in grades 9-12 and at least 13 years old. Interested seniors must apply by October 31st of their senior year.

Testing Requirements for Admittance

The testing requirements mandated by the National Home School Honor Society specify that a student must have a test score, less than one year old, which meets one of the following criteria:

  • SAT at least 1200
  • PSAT at least 1200
  • ACT at least 26
  • Iowa, Stanford, CAT, or Terra Nova achievement test at least 90% on the composite/complete battery.*

*To be acceptable for the purpose of admission into NHHS, the achievement test score must be earned on a test which was on grade level and administered by a non-family member in a group setting. Note that for younger students, the achievement test option would seem most appropriate since the other tests are specifically designed for high school juniors and seniors.

Students are not required to test each year.

Students admitted into either chapter may remain while they meet the age/grade requirements provided they participate cheerfully and uphold the principles of NHHS.

Member Responsibilities

  1. Attend regular meetings in the fall and spring, usually two or three per semester. Meetings are held on Fridays in Fort Worth from approximately 11:00-12:00.
  2. Volunteer time serving non-family members. High school students are required to serve 10 hours each semester.  Some opportunities for group service hours are provided. No church-related service hours conducted during regular church meetings will be counted.
  3. Participate cheerfully in limited chapter fund-raisers and service projects. Funds raised are used to pay national dues and benefit local homeschoolers.
