Grace Bush accomplished an extremely rare task. Not only did she graduate from college at 16, but she did so before her high school graduation!

The Florida teen earned her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Florida Atlantic University, a week before she’s set to receive her high school diploma.

At 13 Bush enrolled in the dual credit program at Broward College. Taking classes throughout the summer allowed for her to finish in just three years.

So just how does a teenager with eight other siblings stay motivated to attend both college and high school at the same time? Family accountability of course.

“My two older sisters are doing it and I’m the third to do it. My oldest sister already graduated and my second oldest sister is graduating in the summer.”

Grace has her sights set on becoming chief justice of the United States. She hopes to spend her summer preparing for the LSAT  [The Law School Admission Test]  before pursuing her Master’s degree this fall.

You go girl!
