IA National Merit Scholarship Scholars Recognized

Over 1.6 Million students took the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) last October and entered the National Merit Scholarship Program, a nationwide competition for recognition and awards conducted by National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC).    In April, NMSC identified the 50,000 highest scorers and notified their high schools.  Some 16,000 of those high performers were recently designated Semifinalists on a state representational basis.   The 34,000 remaining  high performers have been named Commended Students on the basis of a national Selection Index score of 211, applicable to all program participants without regard to state-by-state distribution.
 
The International Academy is proud to recognize 35 Commended and 33 Semifinalist from our Class of 2018.
