Congratulations National Merit Scholars
Posted on 09/28/2016
NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM has recognized SEVEN Phoenixville Area High School students! Semi-finalists include Anna Florio, Matthew Lopolito, and Alexander Seidel. Commended students are Carly Goldberg, Joshua Hayward, Kelly Kopera, and Cailin Robinson. About 1.6 million students across the country took the qualifying Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®). Only 16,000 students were awarded semi-finalist status, with an additional 34,000 named Commended Students. The nationwide pool of semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. The number of semifinalists in a state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating seniors. Congratulations to all of our recognized students!
