Learn More About NAHS/NJAHS

Since 1978, the National Art Honor Society Programs support student members in their efforts to attain the highest standards in art scholarship, character, and service.


What are the National Art Honor Societies?

The National Art Honor Society (NAHS) or National Junior Art Honor Society (NJAHS) are more than “art clubs.” Students are required to meet eligibility criteria for membership as detailed in your chapter’s constitution and bylaws (download the Chapter Handbook for details).

  • NAHS is for high school students in grades 9-12.

  • NJAHS is for junior high and middle school students in grades 6-8 (junior high schools encompassing grades 6-9 should include 9th grade students as part of their NJAHS chapter).
