Honor Societies

Moreau Chapter of the National Honor Society - Membership into the National Honor Society is not an automatic. Students with a minimum grade point average are invited to apply after the first semester of their junior year. Selection is based on the Society's standards of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Members are expected to uphold these standards throughout their time at the Academy. Membership incurs a responsibility and an obligation to demonstrate these qualities that result in selection. Members are also expected to attend meetings and participate in service projects, the most visible of which is peer tutoring.


The International Thespian Society honors excellence in high-school theatre. Students who have earned membership in this honor society have shown dedication to the theatre arts and the Holy Cross Performing Arts Department.

For membership information, please contact Dale Placek. Current Holy Cross students should visit the Forms and Documents page in the Student Portal.
