TLCA Junior High has added "CyberPatriot" to our course list for 6-8th grade. We are excited for the school year and all of the advancements in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. 
>>> What is "CyberPatriot" and why is it important?
CyberPatriot is the Air Force Association's National Youth Cyber Education Program, created to inspire K-12 students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation's future. Here students will gain the skills necessary to become proficient in their abilities to secure multiple types of software such as Ubunto and Windows. Students will learn to reenforce firewalls, update security software, and learn administrative duties as a part of this program as well.

Welcome to the NJHS page! We hope you are able to find the information you are looking for. If not, please reach out to our National Junior Honor Society sponsor.


Note to NEW families: If your student is a transfer and is already a part of the National Junior Honor Society, we will honor that position that has been earned. We simply request a letter from the former school.


The NJHS is a student group that was established in 1929 in order to help recognize and promote student achievement in the areas of scholarship, character, service, citizenship, and leadership. (It is actually part of the National Honor Society - or NHS - but with a specific emphasis on the middle-level grades.) 


More than 80 years later, the NJHS has maintained its reputation for excellence and continues to do so through its members, as well as through the schools and communities that support it. This reputation could not have been established without the commitment of everyone involved. 


Therefore, membership in the NJHS is both an honor and a commitment. And, through various NJHS chapter service activities, members continue to both maintain and broaden the qualities and capabilities they displayed in order to be selected for the association. 


Thousands of schools are chartered through the NJHS, and college admissions officers consider participation in an organization such as the NJHS to be a good indicator of success at the college level, and later in life as well. 


As long as the members and supporters of the NJHS continue to learn and grow in a positive direction, so will the NJHS continue to flourish.
