We’re thrilled to announce and celebrate one of our incredible students.

Silas Enjel, a senior, received a remarkable score on his PSAT, taken in 2017. His score was so remarkable that the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) recognized Silas’ achievement and named him a Commended Student in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program.

What does this mean? It means that out of 1.6 million students who took the PSAT, Silas was one of only 34,000 students in the nation to demonstrate exceptional academic promise.

Commended students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (the PSAT/NMSQT).

The NMSC says students like Silas are a treasure to our nation. PAA is blessed to have had four of these treasured students graduate from PAA in the last eight years!
