Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society


DOWNLOAD PERMISSION FORM FOR HIGH MUSEUM OF ART TRIP HERE. Please have your parents complete and sign the form by Wednesday, March 7th.

Also, we are thinking about doing the Teen Night at the High Museum of Art on March 9th. Tickets are $5 (parking not included). More info will be coming on that, too.

I am the sponsor for the Rho Kappa NSSH for this school year. If you’re interested in joining, please come see me in room 2042 to pick up a membership application form or you may download it here.

All application forms are due back to me (Dr. Astorian) by November 10th. A committee of teachers will select the members as per national guidelines. Completion of the application form does not necessarily mean that you will be accepted into the honor society.

The national requirements are as follows:

  • a 3.0 base GPA in the social studies classes that we teach here at Wheeler.
  • a 3.0 overall GPA
  • At least four classes (or in their fourth class) taken, with plans to finish with six social studies classes taken by graduation.
  • Been a student at Wheeler for at least one semester and should be an upperclassman.
    • Special considerations can be met with a letter to the National Advisory Council
  • A letter of recommendation from a current Wheeler faculty member

Dues are $25 per member, which includes national dues (individual and chapter) and honor cords.

As we meet, we will discuss meeting times, dates, a leadership board, and community service activities and field trips.

For further information about the national organization, please see this brochure or visit the official national website.
