Athens Academy Students Recognized by National Merit
Athens Academy is pleased to announce that fourteen members of the Class of 2023 have been recognized by national organizations based on their performance on the October 2021 PSAT/NMSQT.
Congratulations to Seager Hunt, Robie Lucas, and Thomas Meyer, who have been named Semi-finalists by the National Merit Scholarship Program. As Semi-finalists, these three students represent the top 1-2% of the highest scoring seniors across the country. They will continue in the competition for National Merit scholarships, which will be announced next spring.
While Athens Academy’s Class of 2023 comprises just 6% of the seniors in Clarke and Oconee County schools, these three students represent 21% of the total Semi-finalists across both counties. Athens Academy, Clarke Central High School, Oconee County High School, and North Oconee High School reported a total of 14 Semi-finalists. No other schools in these counties had students scoring at the highest level for National Merit recognition.
