Geneva School of Boerne is proud to announce that 13 seniors and two juniors earned recognition from the College Board for their academic accomplishments on the 2021 Preliminary SAT.

Seniors Ella Babic, Sophia Baldwin, Abigail Bower, Sloane Burkholder, Claire Erfurt, Karynn Garrow, Chaz Lutz, Austin Malkowski, Elle Nicholson and Gage Secor and junior William Muck earned College Board National Small Town and Rural Recognition.

Seniors Juliana Flores and Noelle Moerdyk and junior Claire Coultress earned College Board National Hispanic Recognition as well as College Board National Small Town and Rural Recognition.

“Our method of education does not aim at producing savvy test-takers, but it is gratifying to see it happen along the way,” Geneva Rhetoric School Headmaster Dirk Russell said.

Over 1.5 million students took the PSAT last October. Students are considered for the Rural and Small Town Recognition Program based on the location of their high school. Areas are considered rural and small town based on location data from the National Center for Education Statistics. To be selected, students must score in the top 2.5% on the PSAT/NMSQT among high school junior test takers in their region.

In addition, students are selected to participate in the National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) when they score in the top 2.5% on the PSAT/NMSQT among all Hispanic and Latino test-takers in each region.
