Of the 1.5 million students to test for the National Merit Program, three percent (50,000) score high enough for semifinalist consideration and are designated “Commended Students.” We are pleased to say that AACS has three of the top three percent in the country and congratulate Bethany Laible, Caleb Robertson, Abigail Schaeffer, on their “Commended Student” status.
Of that group, only 1,600 go on to become semifinalists, and from there 800 go on to receive National Merit Scholarships.
In addition, we are pleased to announce that of the 160, 000 Black Americans who tested in the National Achievement Program, our own Loretta Grant scored in the top three percent and earned “Outstanding Participant” status.
We are so proud of all of you, and look forward to seeing the wonderful ways the Lord will use you and your futures!
