Academic Excellence

Academic excellence at Seton LaSalle is an everyday occurrence—from honor roll, to National Honor Society, to student awards, the students of Seton LaSalle never stop reaching for the stars. With over 50% of our students achieving one or more of these accomplishments, we have a student body that is determined, focused and preparing for the future.
Sarah Osterhaus, '22 and Kathleen Farnan, '22 are two of the 50,000 highest-scoring participants of the 2022
National Merit Scholarship Program! Both Sarah and Kathleen received a score of 207 or above on their PSATs to qualify for the program. Because of their outstanding academic potential, they both will be recognized as either semifinalists or commended students in the fall. 
Congratulations to Sara and Kathleen on their hard work paying off! We wish them the best of luck in the next round of the program! 
Congratulations to Hadia Killang, '21, on being awarded the Academic All-American Award through the National Speech and Debate Honor Society! This award honors her for her academic rigor, competitive speech and debate success, outstanding character and leadership, along with personal excellence.
Margaret Brown, '23, is one of just 50 high school students selected to participate in UPMC's "I Look Like a Cardiologist" Program! The program will consist of four virtual sessions and four meetings with a young physician mentor. Margaret will receive a letter of reference that she can use in the future for college, scholarship, and internship, and future UPMC program applications. 
Margaret is one of 50 students selected out of over 120 applicants. Decisions were based on an application that included her transcripts and test scores, in addition to three essays. 
Congratulations, Margaret!
Congratulations to Malia Sigg, '21, who was named a School Winner in the High School Heisman Scholarship Program! School winners are recognized for their outstanding academic and athletic achievements, in addition to their devotion to community service. 
Not only is Malia an outstanding student in the classroom, but she is an involved member of our school community as well. She is involved in Student Council and is a leader on the field and on the court as a member of our girls volleyball and girls lacrosse teams.
To commemorate this accomplishment, Malia will be presented with a High School Heisman School Winner Award.
Hadia Killang, '21, is a finalist in the QuestBridge National College Match Program! The program gives students like Hadia, who excel academically, the opportunity to pursue an education through full-tuition scholarships at the nation's most prestigious colleges and universities like Boston College, Columbia, Dartmouth, the University of Notre Dame, Yale, and more. Now that Hadia is officially a finalist, she'll find out on December 1st if she matched with any of the universities she ranked. If it's a match, she's automatically admitted on a full-tuition scholarship! 
If she doesn't match with the colleges she requested, she can still submit her application to be considered for admission and generous financial aid and merit scholarships to these same universities.
Good luck, Hadia! Your Rebel family is rooting for you!
