Milford Schools is proud to announce that we have three Milford High School seniors who have been named National Merit Scholar Semi-finalists, placing them in the top one percent of U.S. high school seniors. Congratulations to Steven Hart, Andrew Hall and Andrew Reinhart for this tremendous achievement! 

The National Merit Scholarship Program recognizes students who demonstrate exceptional academic ability based on their performance on the PSAT taken during the junior year. These talented students are part of about 16,000 national semifinalists who have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,600 scholarships worth about $33 million.

The students will learn in the spring if they have become a National Merit finalist. To become a finalist, the student and his or her high school must submit a detailed scholarship application, in which they provide information about the semifinalist's academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment and honors and awards received.
