MASON, OH –Mars Hill Academy senior Jenna Jacques of West Chester recently achieved "Finalist" status in the National Merit Scholar program. Jacques had been named a Semi-finalist in the fall due to her qualifying scores on the Preliminary Scholastic Achievement Test.

More than 20% of Mars Hill graduates (including the class of 2014) have earned Commended, Semi-finalist, or Finalist status. To become a Finalist, a Semi-finalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by the high school principal, and earn SAT scores that confirm the student's earlier performance on the qualifying PSAT.
