California Scholarship Federation (CSF)

CSF meets Thursdays during lunch in Room J-102.


  • California Scholarship Federation (CSF) is Piner High School's Honor Society where students must fulfill grade and course requirements for each semester they are members. Students, who are members for four semesters from their tenth to twelth grade years, including one semester during their senior year, become lifetime members of CSF. They receive a golden seal on their diploma and graduate with a golden tassel.
  • Students may join as inactive members. An inactive member is a student whose school obligations to academics, school, and family do not allow attendance at lunchtime meetings. CSF membership is based on a student's academic successes, not attending meetings. Get a membership form and pay your dues ($5) each semester to stay on the roster and to stay current.
  • Our Motto is "Service through Scholarship." In 2003-04, Piner High's CSF organized the first annual campus clean up and went to UC Berkeley for a campus tour. Last year, CSF planned and executed a trip to Stanford University and organized two community service projects.
  • This year our President is spear-heading, "Operation Military Kids" on campus. While America sends its heroes to keep our nation safe, many non-military familes are left to cope without a parent. This national project recognizes our kid-heroes. Join us to become a party of the outstanding 2010-11 project.
