The Clothesline Sale is a cherished tradition at Sewickley Academy that not only serves the school through the significant funds raised but also provides a service to the greater community. However, in order to protect our students, faculty, and staff, as well as our neighbors during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Clothesline Sale. This was a difficult decision, but we believe it was the right one. However, we plan to see you at the Clothesline Sale in 2021 and we need your donations!
Three Seniors Named Semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program
Three students from Sewickley Academy have been named semifinalists in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program (NMSP).
On Wednesday, September 9, 2020, officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced the names of approximately 16,000 semifinalists in the 66th annual program. They are the highest-scoring entrants in each state. The Academy’s semifinalists are Aidan Ragoowansi, Navin Rana, and Aeyoung Song.
These scholastically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for approximately 7,600 National Merit Scholarships, worth approximately $30 million, that will be awarded in the spring. Students who advance to the finalist level will be notified in February.
Approximately 1.5 million juniors in more than 21,000 high schools entered the 2021 NMSP by taking the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which served as the initial screening of the program entrants.
