The United States Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by Executive Order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our Nation’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors. Students from both public and private schools are invited to apply to the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program based on their performance on the ACT and SAT tests.
