Alpha Rho, National Homeschool Honor Society Accepting New Members

Compass is home to the Alpha Rho (AP) chapter of Eta Sigma Alpha (HSA), the National Homeschool Honor Society. Alpha Rho is one of over 300 chapters of HSA throughout the nation. Applications are being now accepted from homeschooled students in 8th-12th grade.

The goals of HSA are to:

  • Recognize and promote scholarship and academic excellence
  • Create opportunities for leadership
  • Foster networking and socializing among homeschooled students
  • Plan and participate in service projects

Alpha Rho meets twice a month at Compass (Herndon), on Fridays from 3:15 pm- 4:30 pm, with meetings alternating between business/planning meeting with a speaker and area service projects.

For many, HSA will provide a noteworthy extracurricular activity and credential on future college or scholarship applications. HSA is a student-run organization with an advisor. The Alpha Rho is open to all qualified homeschooled students in the area, whether they take Compass classes or not.
