IVLA is proud to be recognized with its own chapter from the National Honor Society. A frequent question families often ask is how a National Honor Society chapter works with an online high school. The answer is – it’s not that much different from a traditional brick and mortar school! Below you can learn more about IVLA’s eligibility and National Honor Society membership requirements for student consideration.
Just like at a traditional high school, students at IVLA must maintain a GPA of 3.5 or higher in order to be a member of the NHS. In addition to attending monthly online meetings, students must also actively participate in our school-wide service projects. These service projects vary from year to year and are always organized so that you may contribute as a student from anywhere in the world. If you’re interested in learning about our current service project, please contact us! We’re always happy to chat with you about this by phone, our online chat, or email.
Additionally, NHS members at IVLA are also required to complete a minimum of ten (10) community service hours within their community each school year. This service needs to be verified and tracked by a leader of the community organization they serve. Lastly, students must participate in one-hour per month of live peer tutoring in a subject of their choice or similar live activities such as leading social hours or leading other school activities.
