Seven Hills Tops National Merit Percentage Among Cincinnati Schools

After an extensive analysis of the percentage of students named National Merit Semifinalists based on the graduating class size of schools in Cincinnati, Seven Hills is pleased to announced that our Class of 2016 has produced the highest percentage of National Merit Semifinalists in Cincinnati, with 9.6 percent of the graduating class receiving this prestigious recognition.

“We are very proud of the Class of 2016 for many reasons, just one of which is their terrific scores,” said Assistant Head of School and Director of College Counseling Susan Marrs. “Twenty-nine percent of our graduating class has earned National Merit recognition and we’ve just learned that 9.6 percent of them are semifinalists, giving them the distinction of having the highest percentage in the city!”

The National Merit Program also recently released the names of our National Merit Semifinalists, bringing the total number of Commended Scholars and Semifinalists to 25. The number is 29 percent of Seven Hills School’s 2016 graduating class. Students qualify for recognition in the National Merit programs with their scores on the PSAT/NMSQT®.
