ASF students, Edurne Pérez, Sofia Blasquez, and Marcos Micha, have earned academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs. These National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them meaningfully connect to colleges and stand out during the admissions process. These Upper School students were specifically awarded with the National Hispanic Recognition Award (NHRA).
To provide more context, Students who have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams may be eligible; in addition, they should be African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latin, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town.
At, ASF, we’re thrilled that our students have earned this recognition. We are very proud of them for their achievements in their classrooms and on College Board assessments. These programs help students from underrepresented backgrounds stand out to colleges during admissions.
