Bishop Ireton High School is pleased to announce the outstanding academic achievements of some of its top students. The school is proud to recognize 72 Advanced Placement Scholars and two Semifinalists for the National Merit Scholarship.
National Merit Semifinalists
Mrs. Denise Tobin, Principal, and Mrs. Kathleen McNutt, Head of School, proudly announce Grace Fisher and Samantha Fisher (daughters of Robert and Lisa Fisher of Alexandria) are Semifinalists in the 65th National Merit Scholarship Program. Approximately 16,000 students nationwide have been named semifinalists, and they will compete for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million that will be offered next spring. Students entered the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) in October 2018. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.
Bishop Ireton High School is proud to announce that 72 students have earned Advanced Placement (AP) Scholar awards from the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement (AP) Program exams taken in May of 2019. These honorees include current students and members of the Class of 2019.
