Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society is the only national organization for high school juniors and seniors that recognizes excellence in the field of Social Studies. Any accredited public or private high school can apply for a local chapter, through which individuals will be inducted into Rho Kappa Honor Society. A Rho Kappa chapter at our school provides national recognition for our outstanding students, and encourages an interest in, understanding of, and appreciation for the social studies.
Students must apply for membership each spring and remain in good academic standing, with a 3.0 cumulative GPA and a 3.5 GPA in Social Studies. Students also need to have taken 2 years of Social Studies, have more scheduled for the next year and must complete a minimum of 5 hours of Social Studies related community service. We work with the community, especially the Palmer Lake Historic Society.
