About 1.5 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of semifinalists, representing less than 1% of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state.  Our Commended Scholars performed in the top 34,000 students in the nation or top 2.2% of all students!

Congratulations Daniel, Abigail, Joshua and Jane!
