• 2019 National Honor Society Application Information

    Thank you for your interest in applying to the National Honor Society at Great Valley High School! 

    Important information about the application:


    A few suggestions for filling out the application:

    1. Use this weekend to start your application, and revise after attending the meeting on Monday, September 16. 

    2. Type all responses in a word document to save and make sure that your spelling and grammar is correct. Then copy into the form when you are ready to submit. 

    3. Be honest! Any false information will disqualify you from consideration. 

    4. Descriptions of service and leadership should be succint, but informative. Pretend you only have a few minutes to describe an activity to someone who knows nothing about it.
