Academic Honor Societies
The LaSallian Mission of Education enriches the whole person through classroom instruction, use of technology and the development of the student's cultural, intellectual, physical, social and spiritual well being. Our Honor Societies recognize students whose academic achievements within a specific framework qualify them for membership in the following societies.

National Honor Society
Moderators: Mr. Art Stuart & Mrs. Sandy Deiber
The purpose of this chapter is to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage the development of character in students of Montini Catholic High School. Members of the National Honor Society lead the Peer Tutoring Program and sponsor an Annual Blood Drive.
The Montini Catholic Chapter of the National Honor Society is designed to give recognition and honor to students with a high degree of excellence in scholarship, leadership, character and service. Of these requirements, scholarship is preeminent. Students, who have achieved and continue to maintain a 4.00 cumulative grade point average or higher, are invited to apply for membership in the first week of September. Juniors and seniors responding to this nomination will be evaluated on the basis of the other three requirements of Character, Service and Leadership. Not all students applying are accepted. Students who are accepted to be members are notified by October 10 each fall, and are formally inducted into the National Honor Society in a public ceremony.
