“Today, the energetic 18-year-old can finally take a breath. On May 29, he received his high school diploma from Sierra Canyon in Chatsworth and on Saturday he graduated with a bachelor of arts degree from Cal State L.A.”
A commentary on the degree of difficulty for a film degree, imho...
“Busy people are happy people”.

It is also amazing what one can accomplish when one has a full plate.
Very interesting. I wonder how he got admitted to college when he had not yet completed his high school work?
Which restaurant do we visit to extend our congratulations?
The government schools are being forced by the free market to provide more choice.
Homeschoolers are frequently found enrolling in college early. My own homeschooled kids matriculated at the ages of 13, 12, and 13. All three finished Calculus III and all general college requirements by the age of 15. Two had B.S. degrees in math at 18.
It can be done without that level of saturation. I started taking summer school classes after 8th grade. The extra summer school credits allowed me to "skip" my junior year in high school. I continued the practice into college and finished with my BA in Biology from UCSD at age 19. I took 18 to 22 units during Fall/Winter/Spring quarters. Most summers I was able to wrangle another 16 units. It didn't leave much time for "social life", but UCSD was pretty dead with respect to "parties" in the 1974 to 1976 time frame.
Now that the young man has his bachelor's, it is time to look ahead to grad school. Hopefully, he has a good idea of where he wants to go in life. The absence of life experience could make for a less than optimal decision.

Taking concurrent classes during one’s senior year isn’t uncommon—and many take AP classes in their seinor and junior classes. But this guy is good.
