• Tallahassee Area Coalition Center of Excellence 

    The National Achievers Society (NAS)

    An Academic Honor Society  composed mostly of African-American and other typically under represented youth  

    All Achievers are Elementary, Middle or High School students who have a minimum of

    2 A's, the rest B's for one full year prior to induction; C's can not be accepted.
    • The Society's Goals are to:

    • Inspire youth to recognize that academic achievement is attainable

    • Nurture youth as they pursue their educational, social and personal goals

    • Counter the pervasive and damaging public image of African-American youth that many youth have come to internalize and many adults have come to believe

    • Energize adults to rededicate themselves to preparing children to meet academic and job standards of the 21st Century.

    NAS Pyramid Symbol

    The Meaning of the National Achievers Logo

    • The Pyramid symbolizes achievement.

    • The Black Silhouette of a human being symbolizes the unbroken chain of Africans to African-Americans.

    • The Breaking of Chains of Slavery symbolizes both the breaking of the physical bonds of slavery and the psychological liberation of Black intellect.

    • A Hand Reaching for the Stars in the apex of the logo exemplifies the following quote by Dr. Benjamin Mays "It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for."

    • The Book symbolizes learning as a liberating experience. 

    The Atomic Symbol in the book represents technology and the future.  Members of the National achievers Society will carry the best that the Black Community has to offer in terms of a contribution to the betterment of the human race.
