Summit’s National Merit Scholar Finalists!

During the 2015-2016 school year, Summit High School juniors took the PSATs. Thirty-four were recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program as either commended students or semi-finalists in the Fall of 2016.

Students identified as semi-finalists had to submit their SAT scores, have an outstanding academic record, and be endorsed by a high school administrator in order to be considered for a finalist position. Additionally, semi-finalists had to submit an application with their transcripts, provide a listing of extracurricular and/or volunteer activities, and write an essay. Once selected as finalists, students are eligible to earn scholarships.

Of the 15,000 finalists across the United States, about 7,500 get a scholarship that falls into one of the following categories: National Merit $2,500 Scholarship, Corporate-sponsored Merit Scholarship, and College-sponsored Merit Scholarship.

Summit High School is proud to acknowledge the following 5 finalists: Katherine Scheer, Sean Crotty, Ethan Kantor, Matthew Colon, Christopher Kelser.
