• The link below contains the National Constitution under which all NJHS chapters operate. Local chapters of NJHS are given authority to vary from some sections of this document; for example, they may set the Scholarship requirement at a level above the stated 3.0 national minimum cumulative average standard as long as this new standard is applied fairly and consistently. The limits of the chapter's authority are described in the national handbook, a copy of which has been provided to the chapter adviser of every duly affiliated chapter. Additional copies of the handbook can be obtained by contacting the NJHS Sales office toll free at (866) 647-7253.
