Four Archmere Academy seniors were named National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) Finalists and thirteen were named Commended Students based upon their 2015 PSAT test scores.
Seniors Alison Lobo, Olivia O’Dwyer, Keelin Reilly, and Makala Wang were named Semifinalists in October, meaning their test scores were among the top 1% of the nearly 1.6 million test takers. This month, they were recognized as finalists. Alison, Olivia, Keelin and Makala were four of 15,000 students nationwide that were chosen as finalists from the initial list of 1.6 million test takers. The selection of approximately 7500 Merit Scholarship award winners will be decided in March.

Their performance on the PSATs placed them in the top five percent of all the test takers.
