Brophy is pleased to announce that eight seniors have been named 2021 National Merit Semifinalists.

Students entered the 2021 competition their junior year when they took the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®) which serves as an initial screen of program entrants. Nationally, over 1.5 million juniors from approximately 21,000 high schools took the test with about 16,000 students qualifying as Semifinalists.
