The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization which was established to recognize outstanding high school students. The NHS serves to honor students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.

“We take seriously the selection of those students who are inducted into the National Honor Society,” said FCA Headmaster, Alex Averin. ”We want to be sure the students uphold the Christian values of our own school and that they will maintain this excellence as members of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious student recognition program.”  

The 2016 FCA students were inducted into the Bettie Damiani Chapter of the National Honor Society which was named after the founder of the School, Mrs. Bettie Damiani. The Chapter is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors who have a cumulative average of 90% or higher. Recipients are elected based on their application, Faculty Council review, personal essay, letter of recommendation and academic standing.
