The National Beta Club is an academic club that promotes the ideals of achievement, character, leadership, and service. Senior Beta Club consists of and is open to any student in grades 9-12 who meets the criteria set forth by the National Beta Club and local chapter constitutions. To be eligible for membership in the JCHS Senior Beta Club, a student must have and maintain an overall B average (3.0 or higher) and be a member of good standing in the school community and community as a whole. There is a one-time membership fee of $70 upon acceptance into the club. Membership is not official until payment of dues and member has been inducted through the ceremonial induction. Each member is required to complete 30 individual hours of volunteer service work within the school and/or community for the academic calendar year. In addition to this, we complete 30 hours throughout the year as a whole club. Membership applications are available for new members every fall at the start of the school year in August during the club expo. Applying to the club is not membership, the national office must approve each application before membership is granted. The deadline to submit applications is early fall each year. Click on the Google form at the bottom of this page to complete a membership application. After the deadline, membership is closed until the next school year. Please be on the look out for membership announcements and due dates at the start of each school year.
If you are a member in good standing, you do not need to reapply or pay dues again once inducted. To remain a member in good standing, be sure to come to monthly meetings, participate in club activities, keep up your grades, and complete service hours.
