Phi Theta Kappa Information

Welcome to Alpha Xi Chi!

We are the Alpha Xi Chi chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at St. Charles Community College. What is Phi Theta Kappa? It's not a sorority or fraternity, but the largest International Honor Society in the world, over 1,200 chapters strong! Phi Theta Kappa is the official honor society of the two-year college. Our chapter here at SCC is ranked in the top 100 of all chapters due to our strong leadership and student participation. Explore our site and find out how you can become a member of our award-winning team!

Mission

"The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa shall be to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa shall provide opportunity for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence."
