National Junior Honor Society
Seventh and eighth graders may be eligible for membership in the National Junior Honor Society
. The NJHS recognizes students who excel in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship. SMA students are eligible for membership beginning in the second semester of seventh grade, assuming they have completed the equivalent of one semester of enrollment at SMA. They must achieve and maintain a 3.5 GPA. Candidates for NJHS membership are selected by the Faculty Council and are awarded membership at a spring induction ceremony.
