FA Senior Named National Merit Semifinalist

Congratulations to FA Senior Jonathan R on becoming a prestigious National Merit Semifinalist!

Last year, 1.64 million 11th grade students took the PSAT (Preliminary SAT). To become a National Merit Semifinalist, Jonathan achieved one of the top 16,000 scores in the country. This puts his score in the top 1% of all students nationwide that took the PSAT last year.

As a semifinalist, Jonathan will move forward in the National Merit competition to compete to become a National Merit Finalist, which will be determined in February. If he reaches the Finalist round, he will then progress for a chance to compete to become a National Merit Scholar in March!

Congratulations Jonathan on this amazing achievement!
