Christian Honor Society
Scholarship, Service, Leadership, & Character
Webster’s 1828 Dictionary define honor as “true nobleness of mind; magnanimity (good will); dignified respect for moral rectitude (rightness); a distinguishing trait in the character of good men.” It is with this sense that Faith Academy has established an honor society to recognize and encourage such traits in our students. The objective of Christian Honor Society is to create a passion for scholarship, to promote service, to encourage leadership, and the development of Christ-like character in the students.
Membership shall be based on character, leadership, scholarship, and service. Eligibility to membership in the CHS requires full time attendance for a period of one semester preceding induction. Students must maintain a minimum cumulative average of 90%. All students who can rise in scholarship to or above such a standard may be admitted to candidacy for selection to membership. Their eligibility shall then be considered on their service, leadership, and character. The student’s academic records will be reviewed and the faculty will be asked to make comments and/or recommendations. The final selection of members shall then be made and submitted to the school administration.
Reverence, Respect, & Responsibility
Students participating in the FA Student Council must demonstrate Christian character by adhering to our Core Values and the 3 R’s – Reverence, Respect, and Responsibility. Student Council assists with new student orientation, Red Ribbon Week, Spiritual Emphasis Week and Meet You at the Pole, Fall Festival, Pep Rallies, Homecoming, Community Service Projects, and other activities as needed.
The student council will have two representatives from 7th-9th grade and one representative from 10th-12th grade. Student Council officers and representatives will be elected each fall in September.
To be eligible to run or serve as a class representative or student council officer, each student must have maintained a numerical average of 80 percent or above in all classes and have no serious discipline infractions the prior school year. Students desiring to be candidates must also be approved by the school administrators and student council sponsor. The president and vice-president of the student council are elected from the incoming 11th or 12th grades while the secretary and chaplain are elected from the incoming 10th-12th grades. The school administration and student council sponsor may place a student council member on probation at any time for inappropriate conduct or attitude or failing grades.
Students attend chapel once a week on Thursdays. This is just one component that makes Faith Academy special. During this time, they experience opportunities for spiritual growth through praise and worship, Bible teaching, prayer, testimonies, and guest speakers.
