National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists and Commended Scholars
This year, five Breck students earned recognition as National Merit Scholars through the 66th annual National Merit Scholarship program. Semifinalists have the opportunity to go on and compete for 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $30 million. In order to earn the recognition as a semifinalist in the program, students must complete the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Semifinalists are the highest-scoring entrants in each state and represent less than 1% of this year's graduating seniors nationwide. Congratulations to:
