National Merit

National Merit Scholar

Oxford Area High School is proud to announce Class of 2023 Senior Eliot Long as a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist.  Semifinalists are the highest scoring entrants in each state and are determined by PSAT scores taken in the Fall of junior year.  Less than 1 percent of high school seniors each year are named semifinalists.  Eliot will now move on to compete for 7600 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $30 million dollars!  In order to advance to finalist level, he will need to submit a detailed scholarship application which includes his academic record, leadership abilities, participation in community & school activities, and any honors and awards received throughout high school.  Eliot is a wonderful young man, whose father is a teacher, and his mother is an artist.  Eliot has a wide range of interests and hobbies and looks to his future.  Please congratulate and support him on his next steps.
