Additionally, members of National Honor Society are active members in Alverno student government, campus organizations, athletic teams, and the visual and performing arts while maintaining impressive academic records. In fact, the average GPA of members of the National Honor Society at Alverno Heights Academy is 4.25. New members meeting high standards of scholarship, service, leadership, and character were selected by a committee of faculty members following an extensive paperwork and verification process.
New members to the National Honor Society include sophomores Nancy Alcala, Katherine Fong, McKenna Lindheimer, and Madison Ramirez; juniors Klarissa Barriga, Diana Martinez Precious Perlas, and Sydnee Sao; and seniors Maxine Deng, Minji Kim, and Natalie Scigliano.
These young women join junior Nalleli Cobo as well as seniors Laura Chen, Alicia Mercado, Evina Wang, and Melody Wu as members of the National Honor Society at Alverno.

Through Alverno’s mission of empowering each young woman to be exactly the person she wants to be, these 15 young women have grown into women of scholarship, service, leadership and character.”
