Just like your membership, your NSHSS network will last a lifetime

NSHSS members share not only academic success, but also the drive to excel and the will to make a difference. As an NSHSS member, you will join a network of peers, as well as make connections with partner organizations, such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, United Planet, the CIA, and more. Our leadership programs--the NSHSS Collegiate Council and the NSHSS Fellows--foster special bonds and collaboration among diverse and high achieving students. These are the types of connections that enrich your life and help pave your way as you navigate beyond high school and on to your career.
