3 National Merit Finalists


Over 1.5 million students in more than 21,000 high schools entered the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2019 PSAT.  More than 15,000 Finalists are the highest scoring entrants in each state and represent less than 1 percent of each state’s high school seniors.  The Selection Index Qualifying Score for Virginia was 222 (Critical Reading + Math + Writing).  We had 3 seniors who scored 222 or higher and were previously named National Merit Semifinalists.  


Congratulations to Jason Birsic, Zachary Jacobson, and Rishi Mukherjee for being named 2019-20 National Merit Finalists.
