It's a true Hollywood story.
A 16-year-old Florida whiz kid graduated from high school and college in the same week completing college first.
Its kind of weird that I graduated college before high school, Grace Bush told CBS in Miami.
Grace, who lives in Hollywood, Fla., received her degree from Florida Atlantic University on Friday with a sparkling 3.8 grade-point average. She will receive her "other" diploma on Friday from Florida Atlantic University high school.
The teen was participating in FAU's special dual-enrollment program, which gives more talented students college credit for selected high school courses.
I started when I was 13 at Broward College, and I also took my classes throughout the summer, so I was able to finish it before four years, she told CBS.
Grace is just following a family tradition. She is the third oldest of nine children, and her parents would like all their kids to do what Grace did to save tuition. The kids are home schooled as well.

HS'd both my kids....the best thing I ever did!!!
Meanwhile, government officials had this to say: “The kid should be in jail for flouting the system.”
You go girl!
That’s not fair. Throw the kid and the parents in jail for an unfair advantage.
Bravo for those who home school their children, giving them the best start in life.
I can hear the public educators saying "this is embarrassing, we have to outlaw home schooling to keep our jobs"
Yeppers. Just need to have everyone be equal!/s

Sounds crazy, but it’s probably true.
And black to boot!!! She’s a repeat offender!!!
Back to the plantation, girl!!!
Was just arguing with my son-in-law awhile ago about when they have kids, whether they will be home-schooled. He wants them to go to public school. I want them home-schooled. This is just another story that proves my point.
Good for her and her family!
“I want them home-schooled.”
You know of course, that this is not your business...
Amazing GRACE! This is one BUSH I like.
Way to go, girl. We are proud of you for your determination to be educated and to do it through hard work.
Well, since they don’t have any children yet, it’s a moot point. But my daughter sides with me. And it is her business.
Eric Holder: Banning Homeschooling Doesnt Violate Fundamental Rights
One used to be able to sit for the regents w/o attending class and other places would give you credit for the courses since you passed the regents
Really? When did grandparents become nullified?
These days, public schools are child abuse.
“Really? When did grandparents become nullified? “
Their not nullified, but it’s the parent’s responsibility. Not the Grandparents.
I think that was intended as sarcasm.
They were **NOT** “whizkids”. They were merely homeschooled.
My kids are not any brighter than any of the kids of any Freeper. It was their homeschooling that made the difference.
My kids are NORMAL. It is the institutionalized child in the K-12 indoctrination camps who is being artificially delayed and retarded in his educational and social development.
