More National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists

Last week Patch presented the list of students in public schools, here is the list of students in private or homeschool.

The list of students who attend private schools and nearby-to-Cupertino schools with students who made the 58th annual National Merit Scholarship Corporation semifinalist list are included here.

The list was released Sept. 12 and Patch provided the list of students who attend Cupertino, Homestead, Lynbrook, and Monta Vista high schools in an article National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist List Released.

With about 16,000 semifinalists, the program expects about 15,000 of the students to advance to the finalist level, which will be announced in February.

More than half of the finalists will go on to compete for a Merit Scholar® title and portion of the National Merit Scholarship worth more than $32 million.

More than 22,000 high schools nationwide and about 1.5 million juniors entered the 2013 competition, which awards the honors based on “exceptional academic ability”, and “potential for success in rigorous college studies” the organization said in a statement.

If you have a child who attends a any school and lives in Cupertino and is not on this list, please send the pertinent information to Anne Ernst at anne.ernst@patch.com.
