What is the difference between NHS and National Society of High School Scholars?
PLEASE NOTE THAT IN RECENT YEARS we have noticed an increase in another organization that contacts homeschoolers and asks you to send money to get your student recognized in the National Society of High School Scholars. Your student gets a special invite to just pay $45 or some such fee and they can claim this member recognition. You will receive no solicitation for the true National Homeschool Honor Society and it does not cost $45. Local chapters have a very minimal fee and they personally review the above materials to make sure all members truly qualify. This keeps the standards of NHS high. Colleges know National Society of High School Scholars has no qualification requirement and therefore it does not 'help' to have that on your transcript. The IFHS, at our statewide graduation ceremony, gives gold cords and tassles to any graduate in an Indiana Chapter of the Homeschool National Honor Society and that organization only.
