Colegio Maya National Honor Society

The National Honor Society was founded in 1921 and is one of the most widely recognized co-curricular student activity organizations. It is estimated that active membership exceeds 1 million students per year. Colegio Maya’s National Honor Society Eagle Chapter is one of many NHS organizations around the globe, in which students aim to improve their surrounding communities by actively participating in service and leading by example through demonstration of the society's four key pillars: scholarship, service, leadership, and character.

  • Alcance Por Mi Barrio: Partnership with a community center for at-risk youth in which NHS provides students with a variety of after school activities (e.g. cooking, basketball, robotics, debate)

  • Guerreros Por Guate: Annual nationwide race organized and led by NHS students.

  • Workers: Weekly nutrition, English, and technology classes and semestral convivios/fun days offered to Colegio Maya's maintenance workers.

  • MAIA: Partnership with MAIA Impact School, an all indigenous girls' school in Sololá. NHS students provide weekly English lessons and discussions with the Girl Pioneers at MAIA.

And so much more!
