Congratulations to seniors Simone K., Mirelle L., Maya M., Katherine M., Jennifer S., and Jiatong Z. who were announced as semifinalists for the National Merit Scholarship program yesterday! To earn this recognition, these students scored among the top 16,000 out of 1.5 million juniors who took the PSAT, putting their scores in the top 1% of high school seniors from across the country.

We are excited to support our students as they continue in the National Merit Scholarship application process by submitting applications that detail their academic excellence and demonstrated participation and leadership in school and community activities. Finalists will be announced in February, and approximately 50% of those students will receive one of 7,600 National Merit Scholarships totaling more than $31 million that will be announced this spring.
