Home School Honor Society Now Accepting Membership Applications PDF Print E-mail

The Montgomery-area chapter of the National Home School Honor Society is now accepting applications from qualified home-schooled students entering grades 9–12 for participation beginning Fall 2017.

This organization was established for the purpose of recognizing, encouraging, and rewarding scholarship among home-schooled students. The Beta Theta Chapter (our Montgomery-area chapter) also seeks to provide opportunities for the development of leadership emphasizing the quality of Christ-like character. Consider this excellent opportunity to recognize and honor your students in their high school years as they prepare for the college entrance process as well as their future as leaders, servants, and good citizens.

Our chapter meets monthly throughout the school year with special meetings for our induction ceremony, college prep seminar, and community service projects.
