Bay View Academy’s chapter of the National Italian Honor Society, the Maria Gaetana Agnesi Società Onoraria Italica, welcomed nineteen newly inducted members on Wednesday, April 9th. This marks the first official year and induction ceremony for this Honor Society at Bay View. The Società Onoraria Italica is sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Italian in order to give recognition to outstanding achievement in Italian, as well as to promote a greater understanding and appreciation of Italian culture and civilization.
Candidates for the Society must have a grade average of 90% or more in the study of Italian for every level completed beyond the second year of study. In addition, they must have an overall scholarship average of at least 80% in all subjects. Candidates must plan and participate in social or cultural activities or service project sponsored by the Italian Honor Society. This year, Bay View’s Società Onoraria Italica, has planned a food drive to take place this spring, in conjunction with the Italian Club. The food collected will be donated to the Rhode Island Food Bank.
Bay View students of Italian are additionally required to participate in the National Italian Exam.
