High School PSAT/NMSQT High Scorers
Sixteen Fox Chapel Area High School seniors are among the 50,000 highest-scoring participants on the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®) and have met the requirements to enter the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program. The students are: Emilia Bianchini, Christopher Bonavita, Emelyn Broniek, Theodore Faucher, Nicholas Fennell, Wonho Kang, Shania Khatri, Jacob Klein, Margaret Lazzara, Albert Liu, Adam Mattioli, Elizabeth Mountz, Rebekah Polcyn, Lucy Stone, Jordan Taxay, and Jorgen Wu. Approximately 1.5 million students took the 2016 PSAT/NMSQT and these Fox Chapel Area students are among the 50,000 highest-scoring participants on that test from across the nation.
Approximately 16,000 of these highest scoring students will be named National Merit Program Semifinalists in September 2017, representing the top scorers in each state, and approximately 34,000 others will be commended for their performance on the PSAT/NMSQT. The Semifinalists will have the opportunity to continue in the competition for about 7,400 Merit Scholarship® awards to be offered in 2018.
