Congratulations to four of Southland Academy students, who are a part of 62,000 students from across the country to earn academic honors from the College Board’s National Recognition Programs! These National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors.  Colleges and scholarship programs use these honors to identify students through College Board’s Student Search Service.


Sophia Blankenship, Maddie Godwin, Noah Sheff, and Mitchell Turton earned recognition in the Rural/Small Town Recognition category by excelling academically. Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams, and also attend school in a rural area or small town. Eligible students are invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year, and are awarded at the beginning of the next school year.


We are thrilled that our students have earned this recognition and are very proud of them for their achievements in their classrooms and on College Board assessments.
