CAF is very proud of the academic accomplishments of Carlmont students. Last fall, approximately 1.6 million juniors across the country entered the 2017 National Merit Scholarship competition by taking the PSAT. The PSAT is more than just a practice test. Based on their scores, about 16,000 were chosen as semifinalists (1.1%). The number of semifinalists is proportional to each state’s percentage of the nation’s total graduating class of 2017.

Carlmont is vey proud to honor our eight National Merit Semifinalists, all of whom have qualified to compete to be National Merit Finalists! They are:

Alexander Gray-Spight
