National Merit Scholars
The National Merit Scholarship Program is a United States academic scholarship competition administered by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). To be eligible for National Merit scholarships, a student must take the PSAT/NMSQT in October of his or her junior year. The highest-achieving students are designated as National Merit Scholars, while Finalists and Semifinalists are given recognition for their academic and extracurricular achievements.
Of more than 1.6 million students who sat for the PSAT in 2020, only 34,000 received the honor of being named National Merit Commended and 15,000 were named National Merit Finalists.
Two of our graduates qualified for Commended, placing in the top 2% of students who sat for the PSAT, while one qualified as a Finalist.
Eight of our graduates qualified as thirteen-year students, meaning they and their families have partnered with the FCS community for all of compulsory education (K-12).
