Congratulations to our 17 National Merit Finalists

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced the FINALISTS in the 67th Annual National Merit Scholarship Program. A total of 17 students from the Las Virgenes Unified School District have been selected as National Merit Scholar Finalists.  This program honors individual students who show exceptional academic ability and potential for success in rigorous college studies. High school juniors entered the 2022 National Merit Scholarship program by taking the 2020 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which serves as an initial screen of program entrants.  The nationwide pool of finalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.  These students will be considered for National Merit scholarships that will be announced between March and June.
