Students who were accepted into the National Junior Honors Society were given an acceptance letter starting on the week of May 20. All students accepted are to go to the induction meeting on May 31, at 7, and they should not forget to sign up on the NJHS Google classroom, shown on the acceptance letter.

The National Junior Honor Society is an international student organization that consists of chapters in middle schools. In Rachel Carson, seventh-graders were given a chance to apply if they had a GPA of 3.0 (B) or higher. The fee is $10.

The application deadline was May 18. Membership in NJHS is said to help college admission and financial aid planning options.  To be accepted, you had to write an essay on how you showed good character, service, citizenship and leadership.

This includes a ceremony held for both eighth and seventh graders at different times. The eighth grade students receive medals for completing service hours, and the seventh grade students are given certificates after for joining.

Students in NJHS are expected to do 10 hours of service within the Fairfax County public school area. You can only complete these hours in the school, such as helping out in open house, or help clean up classrooms at the end of the year. The service hours are to be logged in X2vol. Students are also expected, once joined, to add NJHS into their Google classroom, and complete a survey.
