Thomas Jefferson Academy of Advanced Studies
National Merit Semifinalists
The Senior Class of 2021 has set a new record for Thomas Jefferson Academy for Advanced Studies with six students qualifying as National Merit 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. Semifinalists are the highest scoring entrants in each state. Qualifying scores vary from state to state and from year to year, but the scores of all Semifinalists are extremely high. NMSC provides scholarship application materials to Semifinalists through their high schools. To be considered for a National Merit® Scholarship, Semifinalists must advance to Finalist standing in the competition by meeting high academic standards and all other requirements explained in the information provided to each Semifinalist."
