Three Greenwich Academy seniors are among the 16,000 semifinalists in the 59th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

On Sept. 11, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced that Katherine Kippy Ball of Rye, N.Y., Julia Conway of Darien and Clare Hanlon of Greenwich qualified for the program.

The girls qualified as semifinalists by scoring in the top 1% on the preliminary SAT or PSAT, given to juniors last spring.

To become a finalist, each girl must submit a detailed scholarship application in which she provides information about her academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities and honors or awards received.

Finalists will go on to compete for 8,000 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $35 million.

Head of School Molly King congratulated the girls and noted that, “Their accomplishments represent signature values of Greenwich Academy — hard work and discipline in the pursuit of excellence.”
