What is CJSF?

CJSF is a statewide organization founded for the purpose of fostering high standards of scholarship, service, and citizenship in the middle grades. CJSF emphasizes service to the school and the community while creating pride in scholastic achievement.

When does CJSF meet?

What are the academic requirements for CJSF?

The requirements to join CJSF are simple. Because it is a scholarship organization, 7th and 8th grade students earn points based on their grades.  An "A"=3pts; "B"=1 pt; and "C"=0 pts.  Students must earn 8 points per semester.  Qualifying courses are Math, Science, English and History. Students who have a D/F in any subject will not qualify for membership for that semester.

Why a membership fee?

There is a $5.00 membership dues per semester for California State affiliation.

What is required for school/community service?

Students are required to complete 10 hours of volunteer service per semester. Tutoring, coaching, volunteer work with other community groups can all be counted. Any service that is not compensated and helps others qualifies. The goal is for members to balance their high academic achievement with public or school service.

What are the benefits of CJSF membership?

Students who qualify for 3 or more semesters will promote 'With Honors". They will receive a CJSF gold pin, a certificate with a gold seal, and they will be accepted as an Associate Member in CSF (the high school California Scholarship Federation).

Membership brings with it the opportunity to participate in activities which benefit the school, the community, and the student.  Activities will include fund raisers (ink cartridge/phone recycling;??-grams); service projects (tutoring, school supply drive, food bank) and possible field trips.

When do students apply?

Eighth grade students have a 2-week window to apply at the beginning of first quarter.  A copy of the previous semester report card must be attached to the application.
