Fairfield Prep is proud to announce senior Alex Nordlinger has been named as a National Merit Finalist. Of the 1.5 million entrants in the nation, Alex was initially recognized among the top 16,000 semifinalists, and continuing on in the competition he has been recognized as one of 15,000 finalists. This outstanding achievement is highly consistent with Alex’s academic journey at Prep. A 4-year Summa Cum Laude honor student who has taken the strongest course load available and achieved a 4.14 GPA, Alex is a member of the National Honor Society, the Spanish Honor Society, and a peer tutor. He achieved the distinction of AP Scholar with Honor and received the Sikorsky award for Excellence in Math and Science at Fairfield University, and the Brown Book Award at Prep’s National Honor Society ceremony.

Alex was a 4-year member of the soccer team, attaining JV Captain and 2-time coaches’ award recipient. He is the founder and director of the TOPSoccer program in Weston, a soccer program for children with intellectual and/or physical disabilities. He also volunteers at Urban Impact, working with Bridgeport youth. Alex was a participant and student leader on Prep's Appalachian immersion trip.
