Honor Society Inductees
At the recent honor societies and Book Awards event, a parliament of Owls earned their membership into six prestigious honor societies.
DEPARTMENT OF CLASSICAL AND MODERN LANGUAGES HONOR SOCIETIES
Instructors in the Department of Classical and Modern Languages recognize students who have excelled in the study of French, Spanish, and Latin through three national language honorary societies: Société Honoraire de Français, Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica, and Latin Honor Society.
The modern language societies reserve membership for those who have completed a minimum of five semesters of study. The Latin Honor Society bestows membership on students who qualify at each level of study. The faculty considers academic achievement as well as enthusiasm for the subject and classroom comportment in choosing honorees each year.

Eighth-grade inductees are recognized in the Lower School Order of the Owl ceremony.
QUILL AND SCROLL SOCIETY
Membership in Quill and Scroll, an international honorary society for high school journalists, is bestowed upon those students who satisfy the high academic requirements of the national organization and receive the recommendation of a faculty advisor for superior work in journalism or school publications.
MU ALPHA THETA
The purpose of Mu Alpha Theta, an international honorary mathematics society, is to stimulate interest in mathematics by providing public recognition of superior mathematical scholarship and by promoting competitive activities. Membership is reserved for those who have maintained superior scholarship in mathematics over a minimum of five semesters and who have demonstrated an exceptional aptitude and enthusiasm for the pursuit of knowledge in the field of mathematics.
The Civic Service Organization conceived Societas Caritatis, meaning “Society of Charity,” to recognize students who have demonstrated outstanding charitable leadership and/or service to the local community. The CSO sets the requirements for membership, and each year the CSO Executive Board selects the inductees.
