Honor society members pledge to uphold the principles of scholarship, leadership, service and character. To become a member, students must achieve a 3.7 grade-point average and be approved by a faculty committee. The students selected are academic and moral leaders who contribute significantly to their school and community.
Members participate in service projects such as Habitat for Humanity work days and tutoring on campus.
The chapter holds fundraisers throughout the year for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Vikram Kodali Scholarship and to support a local family in need at Christmas.
Goretti is a college preparatory, coeducational, Catholic school off Oak Hill Avenue in Hagerstown.
