National Honor Society
Membership in the National Honor Society at Upper Columbia Academy is based on scholarship, leadership, character and service, as established by the National Honor Society.
Each spring a committee evaluates all junior and senior students who attain a grade point average of at least 3.5. Scholarship is the most important criterion and includes not only GPA, but also the number and difficulty of classes taken beyond the basic graduation requirements.
Unusually negative or positive demonstrations of leadership, character and service also affect a student’s selection to the UCA chapter of the National Honor Society.
Membership in the Society is both an honor and a responsibility. Students selected for membership are expected to continue to demonstrate the qualities by which they were selected.
