The Seven Hills School is pleased to announce 10 Seven Hills seniors, who were just named National Merit Semifinalists by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. The Seven Hills School congratulates the following 2018 National Merit Semifinalists: Michael Barresi, Natalie Choo, Tindar Cyr, Charlie Dwight, Jonathan Harsh, Bobby Kanter, Nick Purple, Mary Grace Ramsay, John Stewart, and Curtis Sun. The National Merit Scholarship Program is an annual academic competition that honors talented U.S. high school students. Historically, more than 90 percent of Seven Hills students who earn National Merit semifinalist recognition also qualify as finalists. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. Semifinalists are the highest-scoring program entrants in each state and represent the top 1 percent of the state’s senior students. Students qualify for recognition in the National Merit programs with their scores on the PSAT/NMSQT®. The National Merit Scholarship Program honors talented U.S. high school students each year for academic excellence. Approximately 1.5 million students from 22,000 high schools across the country enter the program.
