Students Recognized in the National Merit Program

October 7, 2021

 

In addition to the National Merit semifinalist and 13 Commended Scholars who were previously announced, several other Dripping Springs High School students have been recognized by the College Board as part of the annual National Merit program.

 

This year's National Hispanic Scholars (*), National African-American Scholars (#), National Indigenous Scholars (%), and National Rural and Small Town Scholars (^) include many Dripping Springs High School seniors. To qualify for a National Scholar designation, students must have a grade-point average of 3.5 or higher (approximately 87.5 on 100-point scale), have either scored in the top 10 percent on the PSAT or earn a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP exams by their junior year, and identify as one of the designated categories. Students will be considered for the Rural and Small Town Recognition Program based on the location of their high school; areas are considered rural and small town based on location data from the National Center for Education Statistics. Students can qualify for multiple recognition programs.
