St. Johns Country Day School announced that four of its seniors have been chosen as semi-finalists in the 67th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. They are Sean Gregson of Fleming Island, Mia Morin of Orange Park, Robert Morris of Orange Park, and Ariel Sauer of Jacksonville. This is the most from any one school in the Jacksonville area.

“I’m very proud of each of these students. They’ve worked hard over many years to achieve this recognition, and it’s very well-deserved,” said Head of School Valorie Baker.

“Only one percent of high school seniors nationwide achieve this recognition, so these four Spartans have a lot to be proud of,” said Director of College Counseling Caroline Morris.

They are four of approximately 16,000 students who were named by officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. As semifinalists, they now can continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $30m that will be offered next spring. To be considered for an award, performance on standardized exams, participation in school and community activities, and demonstration of leadership abilities are just a few of the qualification specifications.
