TRI-M Music Honor Society

All members of the CHS Music Department have an exciting opportunity to join a community of thousands of other student musicians through induction into the Tri-M Music Honor Society. Tri-M is the international music honor society for high school students. It is designed to recognize students for their academic and musical achievements, reward them for their accomplishments and service activities, and to inspire other students to excel at music and leadership.

Membership in Tri-M is open to students in grades 10-12.  Students are nominated for membership based upon their scholarship, character, leadership, and service. 

 The requirements for maintaining your membership in the Tri-M Music Honor Society are as follows:

  1. Be enrolled in a school-sponsored music ensemble and/or actively participating in an after-school extra/co-curricular music ensemble or performing group.

  2. Complete three, non-paid community service hours per nine-week grading period. Eligible activities will be reviewed during the Tri-M meetings.

  3. Maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and a 3.5 GPA in all music classes attempted.  If the cumulative GPA falls below the minimum requirement, the student will be placed on probation for one semester.  If the cumulative GPA is not restored to the minimum requirement by the end of the probation semester, the student will be removed from membership. 

  4. Serve in a school or community leadership role at least one time per school year.  Verification of leadership experience will be required.  Eligible leadership activities will be reviewed during the Tri-M meetings.

  5. Maintain a character of the highest integrity, always seeking to demonstrate respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, caring, and citizenship.  Any student receiving an ISS or OSS will be removed from membership. 

  6. Attend at least 3 out of 4 after school quarterly Tri-M meetings during the school year.

    Students that are Tri-M members during their senior year and have at least one prior year of active participation will be awarded Tri-M honor cords to wear at graduation.
