The Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica (SHH) is a national honor society for high school students enrolled in Spanish and/or Portuguese, sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP). The purpose of the society is to recognize high achievement of high school students in the Spanish and Portuguese languages and to promote a continuing interest in Hispanic and Portuguese studies. Students serve the Jesuit community by tutoring in Spanish and also participate in other service to the greater Hispanic community in New Orleans. Membership in the Capítulo San Ignacio de Loyola at Jesuit High School is granted to students at the sophomore level and above who maintain an A average in Spanish for three consecutive semesters.
