High School Sees Largest National Merit Semifinalist Group

Congratulations to Kaloyan Stefanov, who was named as a National Merit Semifinalist in the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Competition!  

Last month we recognized twelve of our Mt. Lebanon High School seniors and we are excited to announce that with the addition of Kaloyan, we have the largest group we have seen in recent years.  

Based on the results of the PSAT, less than 1% of the 1.6 million students, who as juniors took the PSAT last fall from across the country, have been recognized as National Merit Semifinalists.

Each September, about 16,000 students, or approximately one-third of the 50,000 high scorers, are notified that they have qualified as Semifinalists. To ensure that academically talented young people from all parts of the United States are included in this talent pool, Semifinalists are designated on a state-representational basis.
