Five students have qualified for the College Board National Recognition Program. Congratulations to Aminata Bah ‘24 (Mason), Jourdan Jones ‘23 (Madeira), Gigi Macias-Jamie '24 (Union Township), Alex Riemann ‘24 (Montgomery), and Christian Sprinkle ‘23 (Fairfield).
To be considered eligible for the recognition program, students must 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; and are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town.
These national recognition programs grant underrepresented students academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them connect to colleges and stand out during the admissions process.
"We're very proud of these students and this national recognition they have earned with their talent and hard work," said Sarah Beyreis, director of college counseling. "One of the things I love about working at Country Day is the remarkable diversity of all kinds in the student body here—and their imagination and talent. Our students make this a vibrant place to be!"
