There are over 15 million high school students in the United States.
With this many high school students, what are the chances of your student getting noticed?
Well, let me break it down for you (huffingtonpost):
Picking a perfect NCAA bracket
Odds: 13,460,000 to 1
Birthing identical quadruplets
Odds: 13,000,000 to 1
Becoming an astronaut
Odds: 12,100,000 to 1
Odds: 10,000,000 to 1
And getting noticed as a high schooler in a sea of students is even less likely.
But there is a secret weapon.
There is one thing that, every year, allows 55,000 participants to rise above the competition.
The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®)—a test which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.5 million entrants each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.

Many people hear of the program, but too often they hear of it too late in the game. Their grades aren’t good enough. It’s too late to take it. They didn’t fill out the proper paperwork. They don’t know how to interview. And the list goes on.
That’s why Launch Academy, The #1 Tulsa Tutoring Company, crafted a unique, condensed program designed to help students maximize their scores.
Our program is uniquely designed to give your student the skills and training they need to be selected as a National Merit Scholar. Through hours of research, extensive interviews with national merit scholars themselves, and reviewing the leading prep books on the PSAT/NMSQT, we have constructed a program that is both comprehensive and customizable to meet your student’s personal needs.
To ensure you get a high PSAT score and SAT score. This is the gatekeeper of the NMSP® and either gets you into the competition or keeps you out.
To make you stand out from the thousands of papers and shine with your personality. This is the second part of the competition. Your extracurricular activities, community involvement, and volunteer work play a key role here and we can help you find those opportunities.
So you can “wow” the final decision-makers of the program. They say that one of the most underdeveloped skills in high schoolers is public speaking. With a few key lessons though and some practice, they’ll be able to impress even the most intimidating judge.
This sounds great and all but why would a smart person like you want tutoring for becoming a National Merit Scholar®?
Aside from looking amazing on all their resumes the rest of their life, they also qualify for National Merit® $2500 Scholarships, Dozens of Corporate-sponsored scholarships, and HUNDREDS of College-sponsored scholarships (many of which are full-rides). In the end, it can be worth 10s of thousands of dollars, which, in today’s debt-heavy society, is a fortune.
