The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) recognizes students that excel academically and that have demonstrated strong leadership and committed service to their communities. At Cumberland Academy Middle School, the NJHS is open to students in grades 7 and 8 .
To determine eligibility, the NJHS considers candidates' fitness based on the criteria of Scholarship, Leadership, Character, Service and Citizenship, in order to select students who have both a great academic performance, and also a well-rounded presence in their school community.
Membership in the National Junior Honor Society is highly selective. Students who have a qualifying grade point average, show strong leadership, and serve in their communities are nominated by the Cumberland Academy Middle School (CAMS) academic advisors.
