The National Junior Honor Society recognizes students at Grace with an 85 or above core-curricular grade point average. (These are the required classes for any Honor Roll, not electives.) They must also be recommended by our Faculty Council as to character and self-discipline in the classroom. These criteria must be maintained during membership.

The National Junior Honor Society includes grades seventh through ninth and sixth-graders after the first semester. We have 52 members.
