Fine and Performing Arts Honor Societies
National Art Honor Society
NAHS is designed specifically for high school students. In 1978, the National Art Education Association began the National Art Honor Society program to inspire and recognize students who have shown an outstanding ability and interest in art. The NAHS strives to aid members in attaining the highest standards in art scholarship, character, and service, and to bring art education to the attention of the school and community.
The AHA chapter of the NAHS is a service-driven organization which recognizes those students in grades 11 or 12 who achieve at a high level in both art and academics. NAHS students participate in a number of service activities, including curating and installing the winter and spring Art Shows at Holy Angels.
