In the running for US Presidential Scholars Program

Congratulations to Year 12 student Sam Barnes, who has been selected as a candidate in the US Presidential Scholars Program.

Sam has been selected to be a candidate in the program based on his exceptionally high SAT scores. He's among 4500 candidates who were announced recently, out of approximately 3.6 million graduating students. Most of the candidates are from the US, but Sam is eligible as an "American Abroad".

The next step for him will be to complete the final application, then await notification of whether he has been selected as one of only 161 scholars. If he's successful, he'll be recognised at the White House in June.

The US Presidential Scholars Program aims to recognise and honour the country's most distinguished graduating high school students.

Well done, Sam, and we wish you all the best!
