Six Grandville Public Schools seniors have been recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program for their academic achievements. Students are considered for the academic recognition and scholarship program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/ NMSQT).

The nationwide pool of semifinalists, which represents less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state. To be named a finalist, students must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by the high school principal and earn SAT scores confirming the results of the qualifying tests.
