List: 2023 National Merit Semifinalists from Bay Area High Schools (2023)

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation on Sept. 14 announced the names of approximately 16,000 semifinalists in the high school class of 2023.

The semifinalists, representing less than 1% of high school graduates, qualified by the results of the preliminary SAT test. Approximately 95% of them are expected to achieve finalist status, of which they will be notified in February, and approximately half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship.

The following list includes Santa Clara, San Mateo, San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Solano, Sonoma, Napa, and Santa Cruz counties. It is organized alphabetically by city and then by high school.
