Of the 1.6 million entrants, some 50,000 with the highest PSAT/NMSQT Selection Index scores qualify for recognition in the National Merit Scholarship Program. Students are notified through their schools that they have qualified as either a Commended Student or Semifinalist.
The Archbishop Ryan High School community is proud to announce these National Merit Scholarship results. We congratulate these students on their hard work and achievements.
AR Senior Mary Grace Meredith (pictured with Ryan Principal Joe McFadden) has been recognized as a National Merit Semifinalist.
To be considered for a National Merit Scholarship, Mary Grace must advance to Finalist standing in the competition by meeting high academic standards and all other requirements. All of Ryan wishes Mary Grace our thoughts and prayers in this endeavor!
In addition, the following have been recognized as National Merit Commended Students.
Pictured with Mr. McFadden are (L-R) Michael Cellucci ‘19, Daniel Lukashchuk ‘19 and David Eniola ‘19.
The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.6 million entrants each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.
