Honor societies have a longstanding tradition of recognizing exceptional intellect and talent. At SCE, these prestigious organizations are open to upperclassmen by invitation only, with each honor society determining its selection criteria for academic excellence.
While membership in an honor society is a great resume enhancer, there are many other benefits. Honor societies can enhance the educational experience through mentoring and networking programs, community service projects and leadership training. Many also provide access to scholarship opportunities.
