Student Success: Another National Merit Semifinalist

We love seeing students succeed inside and outside of the classroom: in the fall of 2022, St. Ambrose Academy senior Gabe P. was announced as a National Merit Semifinalist!

Gabe entered the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the preliminary PSAT/NMSQT as a junior, which served as an initial screen of program entrants. Less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors achieve the semifinalist standing.

To become a Finalist, the Semifinalist and a high school official must submit a detailed scholarship application which includes academic record, evidence of leadership, community activities, service, essay writing proficiency, and high scores on the SAT or ACT that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test.

Gabe joins a growing number of students who have earned this achievement in the nearly two decades of St. Ambrose Academy’s history. Congratulations, Gabe, for this exciting achievement, and prayers for continued success in all that you do as you move through your senior year!
