Student Enrichment

Jenison Public Schools believes in the value of equipping our high school students with opportunities to expand their learning experience beyond the classroom. From honors societies to global business programs, students will discover knowledge and skills that will enrich their future studies and career.
OAISD Careerline Tech Center (CTC) is available to JIA junior and senior students, regardless of county of residence.  A tech center representative visits JHS each winter for an informational session for current sophomores and juniors.  Interested students then have the opportunity to visit programs at the center before the application window opens. Enrollment starts the middle of January.

KISD Kent Career Technical Center (KCTC) is available to JIA junior and senior students that reside in Kent County.  KCTC offers tours of their facilities and programs in the fall and spring. Enrollment starts the beginning of February.


The purpose of the National Honor Society is to reinforce, recognize, and stimulate:

  • An enthusiasm for scholarship
  • A desire to render service
  • The promotion of leadership, and
The development of character in the students of Jenison High School
(adapted from the Constitution, National Honor Society, 1997).

Interested students who wish to be considered for Honor Society membership must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be an 11th grade student who has attended JHS for at least one semester.
  • 3.60 GPA
  • Must demonstrate high standards of character, leadership, service, and scholarship.

Eligible candidates will be notified in the fall, must submit requisite informational materials for consideration by the National Honor Society Faculty Committee and by a date to be determined and communicated to eligible candidates. The Faculty Committee reviews informational materials submitted by the required date, evaluates individual candidacy, and the advisors (on behalf of the Committee) will notify candidates if they are selected to our chapter of the National Honor Society.

Note: Membership is conferred upon selected and eligible candidates and not on the basis of grades and/or interest alone. There is a limited timeline for this annual review, notification of eligible candidates, consideration, selection, and notification process. Therefore, this process occurs at the beginning of the Fall Semester, occurs only once per year, and should be completed by the first week of December (at the latest). Students who wish to be considered as candidates for Honor Society should be involved in community service and be active participants in activities during their high school years.
