National Merit Commended students rank in the top 97 percentile of all students in Texas who took the 2016 PSAT. National Merit Semifinalists rank in the top 1% of all students in Texas who took the 2016 PSAT. Approximately 1.5 million high school juniors from across the country compete each year in the National Merit Competition.
"We are proud of these bright students who not only excel academically, but are involved as leaders on our campus and are able to articulate their biblical worldview in a marketplace full of opposing ideas and ideology," said Dr. Larry Taylor, Head of School, Prestonwood Christian Academy. "These three students represent Prestonwood Christian Academy well, and they showcase how a student can shine at a liberal arts school where faith is not separated from learning, but rather integrated intentionally, resulting in a distinctive environment and community."
Prestonwood Christian Academy serves more than 1,600 students enrolled at three campuses: Plano (Pre-Kindergarten 3 through 12th grade), PCA North in Prosper (Pre-Kindergarten 3 through 7th grade) and PCAplus Virtual Academy.
