Fairfield Prep is pleased to announce recognition of three seniors who are honored in the National Merit Scholarship Program, including Semifinalist Mark Ballesteros and Commended honorees Aryaman Sharma and Jack Rogers. The seniors are recognized based on the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test taken in their junior year. Over 1.6 million students from across the nation entered the competition by taking the test, and the Prep winners were selected based on placement in the top five percent in the highly competitive state of Connecticut.
A spokesperson for the National Merit Scholarship Program commented, "These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success."
