The OLR NJHS is a duly chartered and affiliated chapter of this prestigious national organization. Students who hold a cumulative grade point average of 3.3 or higher on a 4.0 scale are invited to apply to become a member of the organization. Students are then reviewed by the faculty committee to ensure that they meet the required standards of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship, and character. An induction ceremony is held each spring in Holy Cross Church for those students who are invited to join the organization.The OLR NJHS is a service organization. Students assist in variouis ways within the school and community. Students often serve as peer helpers, guides for visitors, and the organing body for the annual celebration of Catholic Schools’ Week. Additionally, students play a role in the community by raising funds to support those in need. This year, the OLR NJHS has sponsored a family in need for the Christmas season.
