A senior at Millennium Collegiate Academy has been named a Semifinalist in the 67th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

Isabella Yeung is currently ranked #1 at the school with a 5.46 grade point average. She is also a Sunshine State Scholar for math and science and tutors her peers in several subjects, including Calculus BC.

“We are excited that Isabella Yeung is a 2022 National Merit Semifinalist,” said Principal Francine Baugh-Stewart. “She is a hard-working and kind young lady.”


Millennium 6-12 Collegiate Academy — previously Millennium Middle School— is Tamarac’s only high school, opening in 2017 with its first class of 9th graders.  There is no automatic zoning for admission and preference is given for students who attended Millennium Middle and are eligible for dual-enrollment with Broward College.

Broward County Public Schools announced the names of 40 other Semifinalists to be considered for a National Merit Scholarship for 2022. The academically talented high school seniors have the opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $30 million.

High school juniors enter the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than 1% of U.S. high school seniors, includes each state’s highest-scoring entrants.

To be considered for a National Merit Scholarship award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 95% of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalists standing, and approximately half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning a Merit Scholar title.
