Six Students Name National Merit Semifinalists and Two Commended Students
Each September, high schools across the country anxiously await the results of the National Merit Scholarship Competition. Currently, more than 1.6 million students from about 22,000 schools enter the program by sitting for the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). This exam measures one's ability to understand and process elements of reading, writing, and mathematics. Approximately 16,000 of the high scorers, representing less than 1 percent of the nation's high school graduating seniors, qualify as Semifinalists in each annual National Merit Competition.
Since 1955, more than 397,000 students have been awarded scholarships worth over $1.6 billion in the National Merit Scholarship Program, and 3 million students have been honored for their academic achievements. For Little Rock Christian Academy, the National Merit program is a perfect mission fit, as it encourages the pursuit of academic excellence at all levels of education.
Please join us in celebrating our six National Merit Semifinalists and two Commended Students!
