Class of 2013 Sets P-CCS Record for National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists
The Plymouth-Canton Educational Park was informed by the National Merit Scholarship Program that 28 students have been named Semifinalists for the 2013 Scholarship Program. The District has seen averages of 12-20 students per class in recent years. The National Merit Scholarship Program has named approximately 16,000 academically talented high school seniors as semifinalists.
These seniors now have an opportunity to advance in the competition for more than 8,300 Merit Scholarship awards to be offered next spring. Students entered the National Merit and Achievement competitions by taking the 2011 PSAT/NMSQT.
Students must fulfill several requirements to become a Finalist -- display very high academic performance in college prep course work, SAT scores that confirm the PSAT/NMSQT performance, detailed scholarship information about extracurricular activities and leadership positions, self-descriptive essays and full endorsement of the high school principal.
