Rationale

Club activities, class activities, publications, musical groups, and sports activities play an important part in the life of American Christian Academy students.

Students are urged to balance carefully their educational program so that it includes both academic and extracurricular activities. Clubs are formed as students indicate an interest and offer opportunities for developing qualities of leadership, character, service, and cultural appreciation. Students must have attended ACA for at least one year to be eligible for faculty selected honors.

 

List of Student Clubs

French Honor Society – Students completing level 3 of French will be eligible. Admission to the society will be based on GPA and class performance.

Beta Club: ACA provides opportunities for students to participate in this service organization. Students must have maintained an 80% academic average. The selection process is made available to students each spring.

 

Honor Society

The American Christian Academy Chapter of National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society was begun in 1992.  Our chapter has grown dramatically from the initial group of eleven members. Selection will now follow these guidelines:  Announcements will be made each morning alerting students who have a cumulative numerical average of 85 or greater and are in 10th – 12th grades that they are eligible to seek membership in NHS. Students who have a cumulative numerical average of 90 or greater and are in 8th or 9th grade are eligible to seek membership in NJHS.  The higher numerical average requirement for NJHS takes into account the more rigorous courses required in grades 11-12.)  They must complete the information form and turn it in to the office. Student information sheets must contain a reference letter from an adult and community service hours performed during the previous school year. Only those students who turn in the necessary information will be considered for membership in American Christian Academy chapters of NHS and NJHS.

National Honor Society:   Candidates for NHS must have achieved sophomore, junior, or senior status at the time of selection in the spring.  They must have a cumulative numerical average of 85 or above, have fewer than 6 demerits at the time of selection, must fill out a student candidate form, which will include a reference letter and verification of 10 community service hours.  Students who meet these qualifications will then be evaluated by the faculty and reviewed by the headmaster for approval.  The students who are selected will be notified at school but will be inducted at a formal ceremony in the evening.

National Junior Honor Society:  Candidates for NJHS must be in the eighth or ninth grade.  They must have a cumulative numerical average of 90 or above, have fewer than 6 demerits at the time of selection, must fill out a student candidate form, which will include a reference letter and verification of 5 community service hours.  Students who meet these qualifications will then be evaluated by the faculty and reviewed by the headmaster for approval.  The students who are selected will be notified at school but will be inducted at a formal ceremony in the evening.
