National Honors Society

*To become a National Honor Society member there are certain requirements that must be met. Each student must be eligible based on the four pillars of NHS: character, scholarship, leadership, and service. They must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 92%. Starting with the class of 2021, the requirement will be a GPA of 93%. In addition, they must preserve an excellent record of behavior in and out of school, participate in leadership roles in school and/or community activities. Students must fill out a Student Activity Information Form(not just co-curricular activities but also activities in the community and even part-time job experience). Faculty and staff will then have the opportunity to fill out a Character Rating Form for each candidate. Finally, a faculty council consisting of 5 or more anonymous members will review all the forms for each candidate and then make a decision on acceptance.

Youth Council

Help students develop leadership roles in their schools and communities. Share ideas with students from across the county and share ideas and opinions about issues of importance to today's youth. Students have an opportunity to discuss ideas and problems they see within the school and community, identify problems and begin planning ways they can develop solutions.

Art History Club

The Clarion Area Art History club focuses on appreciating and enjoying the old and new art from many cultures. The students are responsible for the street art scattered around the downtown Clarion area. We take a variety of trips to places like Pittsburgh, Washington D.C., New York City, and Europe. The students who want to take the trips are required to pay for it themselves, however, because we are such a big group we get discounted rates. We also have a student based magazine every year called SOL Magazine. Students are able to submit photos or writings that they have done.
