The National Society of High School Scholars

What looks to be a renowned academic prize was given to one of my kids. A creme-coloured envelope with a lovely handwritten return address that resembled a graduation invitation showed up in our mailbox. Moreover, the high school's name was written on the envelope, giving the impression that the administration had approved of this. I was initially thrilled, but the information was confusing. My youngster received an invitation to join the Atlanta-based National Society of High School Scholars. Its abbreviation, NSHSS, is similar to the prestigious and well-respected National Honour Society (NHS). There was a message inside the package that stated, "Congratulations! based on your exceptional academic performance.

Your selection for membership has been made. The letter continued by stating that only a "limited group" of pupils had been offered this invitation. It was claimed that joining the group would grant access to $500,000 in scholarships and "academic competitions" that would be given out over the next year. Also, a student may mention membership in a college application. A membership form that needed to be returned together with a $60 lifetime registration fee was handed to us, along with a confirmation code. Families that are unable to pay for it are granted a waiver. An NSHSS-branded t-shirt and a diploma are given to students who join. A black bumper sticker with the words "Proud Parent of a Scholar: The National Society of High School Scholars NSHSS" was also included in the invitation package. If I so desired, I could tell the world my child was part of an “elite” group. (However, I'm not really a bumper-sticker type of person.)

What NSHSS Provides

an opportunity to compete in "academic competitions" and win scholarships. (Read on for more information.) A membership can be mentioned on a college application. both a bumper sticker and a t-shirt.
