NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
Dominion Academy students aspire to embody the four pillars of the National Honor Society (NHS): scholarship, leadership, service, and character, as they are closely aligned with the Student Honor Code. Membership in the NHS is valued by our students, and it is a very active student organization.
NHS service projects and activities include:
- Coffee house to encourage student musical talent and raise funds for various local and global projects
- Hands and Hearts Workday – an all-school community service project
- Support for Dayton’s local refugee population through events like a coat drive, fall festival, and programs for tutoring children.
- The Dominion Academy NHS chapter also maintains a very successful peer-to-peer tutoring program.
- Scholarship: a student (grade 10-12) must have a GPA of at least 3.25
- Service: This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.
- Leadership: Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
- Character: The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.
Students who meet the scholarship requirement will have an opportunity to complete a form - and an essay - detailing their accomplishments in and commitment to service, leadership, and character.
