Kent Place School seniors Allison Berger of Madison and Natalie Kwan of Saddle River have been named semifinalists in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program. The National Merit Scholarship Program honors “students who show exceptional academic ability and potential for success in rigorous college studies.”
Approximately 1.5 million high school juniors entered the program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), which screened the program entrants based on their test scores. The number of semifinalists represents less than one percent of high school seniors in the United States.
To become a finalist, students must complete an extensive scholarship application that discusses their academic record, extracurricular activities, leadership skills and other honors they have received. The finalists will be named in the spring and summer of 2014.
Kent Place School is an independent, nonsectarian, college-preparatory day school, which for more than 100 years has provided a superior education for young women who demonstrate strong scholastic and creative ability. Please visit Kent Place online atwww.kentplace.org.
