California Junior Scholarship Foundation (CJSF)
Holy Name of Mary School has a chapter of CJSF, which is an affiliate of the California Scholarship Federation, a statewide organization. It was founded in 1967 for the purpose of fostering high standards of scholarship, service, and citizenship in the junior high school grades (7 and 8). CJSF emphasizes service to the school and the community while creating pride in scholastic achievement. Its motto is "Scholarship for Service." Individual student membership is based on grades earned each trimester. A point system, specified in the State Constitution, establishes the membership requirements, which essentially state that students do very superior work in every subject.
