ORHS National Merit Semifinalists
Two Oak Ridge High School seniors have been named as Semifinalists in the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program. Over 1.3 million juniors in about 21,000 high schools entered the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2022 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.
Congratulations to Rohan Balla and Morgan Glennie on being named Semifinalists in the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program.

Please be aware: on October 11th and October 17th we will be conducting the PSAT and ACT test. The tests are now online, so it is very important that your student be on time on these days. Once the proctor has started the test, students will not be allowed into the testing rooms and will have to make up the test later. Please plan accordingly.
School Day PSAT is October 11th for Sophomores, Juniors and only for Freshman that registered in advance.
