National French Honor Society

La Société Honoraire de Français (National French Honor Society) provides an opportunity to recognize outstanding scholarship in the study of the French language. The society strives to provide its members a vehicle for engaging in activities to further explore the French language and Francophone cultures, and to help further promote these in the school and their community. The society also sponsors and participates in fundraising activities to benefit the Francophone community locally and abroad.

Students of the society are eligible for scholarships to further their studies in French or to travel abroad, and are also eligible for other forms of recognition for their intellectual and creative endeavors in the context of French studies.
