Honor Societies

La Salle prides itself on the academic excellence of our students. We offer five different honor societies in which students are recognized for their classroom efforts. The application process varies between each group, with some memberships requiring students to re-submit applications between semesters. Membership in any one of these organizations is considered a notable achievement and worthy of commendation. 
Senior Senate
Senior Senators act as an advisory group in matters relevant to student life. Additionally, they propose nominations for the Signum Fidei award, a prestige which is given to members of the school community who have significantly contributed to the students of La Salle High School.

Senior Senators are appointed by the Principal. In order to be considered, students must have demonstrated high academic and leadership qualities. These students traditionally have the highest cumulative GPA, SAT/ACT test scores, and/or the highest GPA over the last six semesters. 
California Scholarship Federation
The California Scholarship Federation seeks to foster high standards of scholarship, service, and citizenship within its members. Accepted students are eligible for a variety of exclusive scholarships at universities across the state and in select colleges nationwide.

In order to become a member, students must initiate an application (applications are available during the first two weeks of each semester) and meet certain criteria: they must have at least ten CSF qualifying points, have satisfactory citizenship, have no D or F grades in any subject during the previous semester, and have completed the first semester of their sophomore year. Students must re-submit an application at the start of every semester they wish to participate.

After completing at least four semesters of membership at La Salle, with at least one occurring during Senior year, students become eligible to graduate Gold Seal. Seniors may not apply retroactively. T
he student wears a gold honor cord at graduation ceremonies, a gold seal is placed on the diploma, and they will be recognized for their achievement.
National Honor Society
The National Honor Society recognizes students with outstanding accomplishments in scholarship, leadership, and service. Members contribute to the school and to the larger community, regularly participating in meetings, projects, tutoring, and other activities.

In order to become a member, students must first submit an application which requires a 3.3 cumulative GPA, completion of the first semester of their sophomore year, and a student information form. Eligible students will be reviewed and selected by the faculty council.

After completing at least three semesters of membership at La Salle, with at least one occurring during Senior year, students become eligible to graduate with NHS distinction. Seniors may not apply retroactively. The student wears a blue cord at graduation ceremonies and will be recognized for their achievement.
Hispanic Honor Society
The Hispanic Honor Society recognizes the high school achievement in Spanish and promotes interest in Hispanic Studies. Members regularly participate in meetings, service, and other activities.

In order to become a member, students must be enrolled in Spanish 3 or higher, with a minimum of three semesters of Spanish language studies, have earned a GPA of 3.7 or above in Spanish studies, and submit a teacher recommendation form from their Spanish instructor. Eligible members will attend the Induction Ceremony thereby becoming members in the organization.

To maintain membership, students will complete a minimum of 8 hours of service each semester, participate in at least 5 of the 7 semester meetings, and be highly committed to the program.
