The National Junior Beta Club
The Jr. Beta Club Induction Ceremony has become a beloved and joy-filled tradition at The Imani School. For students, induction into the Beta Club is the culmination of hard work and perseverance; for teachers, it is an actualization of moments in class when instruction evolves into learning and learning to knowledge; for administrators, it is an opportunity to recognize students who have accepted the challenge to give the very best of themselves; and for parents, it is simply, as church folks say, "shouting time."
Founded in 1934, the National Beta Club is committed to recognizing and promoting high academic achievement, rewarding and nurturing character, fostering leadership skills and encouraging service to others, according to the organization's website. There are more than 420,000 active Betas participating in more than 8,000 clubs nationally and internationally.
Our educational philosophy of "commitment to excellence for the glory of God" has yielded Christian-scholars for nearly 25 years. The brightest as well as service-minded among these have been invited to join the ranks of the Imani Beta Club for roughly 15 years since The Imani School chartered a National Beta Club chapter on campus. Students must earn a 3.6 GPA and attain satisfactory conduct. Students become eligible to join upon completion of the fourth grade.
Congratulations Betas! And, welcome to the next chapter in your academic journey and the pursuit of excellence for the glory of God!
