Home-schooled kids can join honor society

Page 33A

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 mhdmetro@aol.com.
