Freshman Honor Society

  • The Freshman Honor Society recognizes scholarship, leadership, and character of service during a student's first year at Evanston Township High School.

    Eligibility Requirements
    Candidates must make 1st-semester and 3rd-quarter honor rolls, obtain recommendations from two current teachers, participate in an extracurricular activity, and complete 10 hours of school/community service. Violation of school rules may result in denial of admission.

    Procedure for Joining
    All freshmen who are on the honor roll at the end of first semester of freshman year will be invited to become candidates for the ETHS Freshman Honor Society. These students and their families will receive a mailing at home towards the end of February or beginning of March. The envelope should contain additional information about the Freshman Honor Society and a verification form for signatures that indicate completion of community service hours, participation in an extracurricular activity and teacher recommendations. The verification form must be turned in to the Freshman Honor Society sponsor by the date indicated at the bottom of the verification form, usually late April or early May.

    Once the sponsor has received a signed verification form and determined that the student is on the 3rd quarter honor roll, an invitation to the May induction ceremony will be mailed home to the freshman student and parent/guardian.
