13-Year-Old Graduates College With 4 Associate Degrees
California boy graduates from junior college with four degrees.
A 13-year-old California boy had become the youngest person to graduate Fullerton College with four associate degrees. Jack Rico, of La Mirada, has been home-schooled since third grade because the classroom wasn't challenging enough for him, his mother said.
But earning four degrees was a gigantic challenge, he said. "One hundred percent, you have to study day and night," the overachieving teen said.
His degrees are in social sciences, social behavior and self-development, arts and human expression and history.
He plans to finish his four-year degree at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. He hasn't chosen a major, but says he loves screenwriting.
