The National Honor Society (NHS) is an organization established in the United States and founded by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) to recognize the outstanding academic achievements of high school students. By their commitment to academic excellence, leadership, social service and personal integrity, NHS students exemplify what it means to belong to this organization.

Membership in the National Honor Society is open to students in grades 10-12 who meet the minimum academic criteria (89 % GPA since 9th grade) in addition to teacher (Faculty Council) recommendation. In addition to academic excellence, the Faculty Council considers a student’s leadership abilities, community service, and character in making the invitations.



The C.A.T. Student Council is responsible for scheduling regular meetings with the faculty advisor in effort to discuss student concerns, propose student activities, and promote “school spirit.” As representatives of the student body, they are the direct link to the administration. Yearly elections are held in the spring to elect STUCO officers (Executive Council). Class representatives are selected at the beginning of each school year. To be eligible to run for the Executive Council students must meet the following criteria:


l. A minimum (B-) cumulative Grade Point Average.

2. No disciplinary suspensions during the current school year.


CAT has also been a long standing member of the US National Association of Student Councils.
