Our fellow BASIS Independent School down the road, BASIS Independent Silicon Valley, is a shining example of how a BASIS Curriculum education creates a high school environment like no other! We are pleased to share their recent notable success with you.

23 BASIS Independent Silicon Valley students have earned places as Semifinalists in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program. Roughly 16,000 students across the nation have qualified as Semifinalists, and we are thrilled to have continued representation on our campus.

To qualify as a Semifinalist this year, each student must have a score that falls in the top 1% on the PSAT taken during their junior year. All Semifinalists now have the opportunity to compete for a Finalist position, which could lead to securing a National Merit Scholarship. We wish these students the best, and look forward to the Finalist results coming out in February.

Please join us in congratulating the Semifinalists:
