Sophomore Honor Society

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

    Eligibility Requirements
    Candidates must have a 3.0 cumulative GPA at the end of 1st-semester of sophomore year, make 1st-semester and 3rd-quarter honor roll, obtain recommendations from two current teachers, have participated in an extracurricular activity, and complete a 10 hour school/community service project. Violation of school rules may result in denial of admission.

    Procedure for Joining
    All sophomores who have a 3.0 cumulative GPA and are on the honor roll at the end of first semester of sophomore year will be invited to become candidates for the ETHS Sophomore 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 Sophomore 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 Sophomore 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 sophomore student and parent/guardian.
