Congratulations to the Indiana Academy’s National Merit Semifinalists!

Wednesday, August 31, 2022

The National Merit Scholarship Program is an annual competition for recognition and scholarships that is open to all U.S. high school students that meet entry requirements. Semifinalists named in each year’s Merit Scholarship competition show exceptional academic ability and potential for success in rigorous college studies. The 16,000 semifinalists are the highest-scoring entrants in each state and represent less than 1% of each state’s high school seniors.

We are happy to announce that the Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Humanities will be celebrating four of our very own as 2023 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists! Congratulations to Charles Behrman, Henry Cooper, Lauren Couch, and Karisten Poole for being named semifinalists. We are so proud of these four students and the many others that choose to explore the Academy by being curious, eager to investigate, willing to be challenged, and poised to persist.

Bravo, well done, and hearty congratulations to Charles, Henry, Lauren, and Karisten.
