Interested in National Junior Honor Society?

The National Junior Honor Society chapter of Founders Classical Academy of Flower Mound is a duly chartered and affiliated chapter of this prestigious national organization. Membership is open to those students who meet the required standards in four areas of evaluation: scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Students are selected for membership by majority vote of a five-member headmaster-appointed faculty council, which bestows this honor upon qualified students on behalf of the faculty of our school in the Fall Semester.


Students in 7th, 8th, and 9th grades are currently eligible for membership. For the scholarship criterion, a student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.7 or better on a 4.0 scale.


Each year those students who meet this criterion are invited to complete a Candidate Form that provides the faculty council with information regarding the candidate’s leadership and service.


Additionally, students must meet the specific minimal requirements for consideration:

  • To be eligible for selection to membership in this chapter, the candidate must have been enrolled for a period equivalent to one semester at Founders Classical Academy of Flower Mound.

  • Candidates eligible for election to the chapter shall have a minimum un-weighted cumulative grade point average of 3.7 on a 4.0 scale



Upon meeting the grade level, enrollment, and GPA standards, candidates shall then be considered based on their service, leadership, and character. To evaluate a candidate’s character, the faculty council uses two forms of input. First, school disciplinary records are reviewed. Second, all members of the faculty are solicited for input regarding their professional reflections on a candidate’s service activities, character, and leadership.


Any solicited faculty input and all Candidate Forms are carefully reviewed by the faculty council to determine membership. A majority vote of the council is necessary for selection. Candidates are notified regarding selection or non-selection according to a predetermined schedule. Once made, the faculty council’s decision is final. If there are any questions regarding non-selection, the faculty council expects each candidate to take initiative in asking for clarification. Questions regarding non-selection should be directed to Ms. Gillespie, the NJHS Faculty Advisor, no later than one week after a student has been formally notified of non-selection.


Following notification, a formal induction ceremony is held at the school to recognize all the newly selected members. Once inducted, new members are required to maintain the same level of performance (or better) in all four criteria that led to their selection.

Nurse Update

From the Nurse,


ATTENTION PARENTS OF INCOMING 7TH GRADERS!


The Texas Department of State Health Services requires all incoming 7th grade students to receive a TDap and Meningococcal vaccine prior to the start of the new school year. Please contact their health care provider if your student has not yet received these 2 vaccines. Please provide an official copy of your student's vaccine record to the upper school nurse. You may email a copy to emahns@responsiveedtx.com or drop it off at the front desk at the upper school. Please refer to the link regarding vaccine requirements from the state of Texas.
