Academic Assessment[edit]

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. NMSC is a not-for-profit organization that operates without government assistance. Scholarships awarded through the program are underwritten by NMSC’s own funds and approximately 500 business organizations and higher education institutions that share NMSC’s goals of honoring the nation’s scholastic champions and encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence. Less than 1% of each state's high school seniors qualify as semifinalists. Only 350 students from Minnesota representing 25% of the high schools in the state have been named National Merit Semifinalists. There are 16,000 semifinalists nationwide annually.[citation needed]

Eighteen Cathedral High School seniors in the past sixteen years have been honored by the National Merit Scholarship Program.

Cathedral High School students surpassed state of Minnesota students and students in the USA in all four areas of the ACT test - English, Math, Reading, and Science. The national ACT average composite score was 21.1; the average state of Minnesota score was 22.6; the average Cathedral High School score was 23.9. This is 2.8 points above the national and 1.3 points above the state scores.[citation needed]
