National Junior Honor Society (NJHS)
The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) chapter of Rosarian Academy is a duly chartered and affiliated chapter of this prestigious national organization. Membership is open to those students who meet the required standards in five areas of evaluation: scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship and character. Standards for selection are established by the national office of NJHS and have been revised to meet our local chapter needs. Students are selected to be members by a five-member faculty council, appointed by the Principal. This honor is bestowed upon qualified students in the second semester, on behalf of the faculty of Rosarian Academy.
Student Council (5th – 8th Grades)
Rosarian Academy’s Student Council officers are elected every May for the following year. Class representatives are elected in August of the current year.
The Middle School Student Council team is engaged in student life, setting standards for peer behavior in the areas of school spirit, social and service activities, and leadership. Members of the Council also take leadership roles at school dances and social functions.
A student may hold only one (1) major office during the academic year. Major offices consist of President and Vice President. Only 7th and 8th grade students may hold office as members of the Student Council.
In order to run for office, a student must have the following:
- At least a “C” average for the current school year and no failing mark in any subject
- No less than a “2” in each class in effort and conduct
- No record of school suspension or chronic disciplinary problems
Student Ambassador Program (5th – 8th Grades)
Rosarian Academy’s Student Ambassador program provides our students with opportunities to build leadership and communication skills. Student Ambassadors are the true representatives of a Rosarian Academy education. They help recruit students and families to our school by giving tours at Open Houses, greeting spectators and guests at events, and helping prospective students during their visit. Rising 5th through 8th grade students are eligible to apply to be ambassadors.
