What is National Beta Club?
The National BETA Club was founded in 1934, and has become the nation's largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization. It is an national honor society that focuses on leadership and service within the community. For more than 80 years, it has prepared today's students to be tomorrow's leaders. There are now more than 445,000 active members and more than 9,600 clubs nationally and internationally. It has become the nation's largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization.
National Beta is built off of four pillars:
ACHIEVEMENT - Recognizing and honoring high academic achievement
CHARACTER - Preparing young people for life and empowering them to be successful
LEADERSHIP - Developing the leaders of tomorrow
SERVICE - Demonstrating our motto: Let Us Lead by Serving Others
The Sigma Iota National Beta Club is a homeschool chapter of the National Beta Club. We are located in the Concord, Kannapolis and Harrisburg, NC region. SI Beta Club is an honor organization that recognizes outstanding academic achievement, promotes strong moral character and social responsibility through service and leadership in our community. We strive to support our community in the Cabarrus, Rowan and North Mecklenburg counties.
The junior and senior clubs meet monthly on the first Wednesday at 2:30pm at Crossroads Church of Concord. Membership is open to homeschool / non-public school students in grades 4 - 12 who meet the Beta membership standards.
Junior Beta - Grades 4 - 8

The junior and senior clubs each elect their own officers to govern their clubs independently. Service projects and activities are decided on by each club.
The advisor for Si Beta Club has also partnered with Central United Methodist Church to be a certifying organization for the national Presidential Volunteer Service Award. This award is not affiliated with Beta and open to anyone.
