Seven members of SPA's Class of 2018 have been named National Merit Semifinalists. The Semifinalists are:
The seven Semifinalists represent 7% of this year’s senior class; nationally, less than 1% of high school seniors are awarded Semifinalist recognition. SPA consistently ranks among the top high schools in Minnesota for percent of class recognized in the National Merit competition.
The seven will now have the opportunity to advance to the Finalist level of the competition, which requires the submission of an application and essay, an outstanding academic record, endorsement by the high school principal, and SAT scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the PSAT. Congratulations to all our National Merit Semifinalists!
