North Texas home-schooled students can now get an honor from someone other than their parents.
The first local chapter of Eta Sigma Alpha, an honor society for home-schooled students, is ready to launch.
The group is open to high school-age students with a grade point average of 3.5 or better and high scores on one of a variety of standardized tests.
Eta Sigma Alpha was formed by a group of Houston parents because the National Honor Society doesn’t allow home-schooled children to be members.
For more information on the local chapter, e-mail organizer Feyi Obamehinti at firstname.lastname@example.org.
