Grace Bush is killing two birds with one stone.
The 16- year-old, Florida teen received her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Florida Atlantic University (FAU), before she received her high school diploma from Florida Atlantic University High School (FAU- HS).
Bush’s family enrolled her in a dual program at (FAU-HS), where high performing students – like Bush – can take college courses and high school courses. According to FAU’s website, in order to enroll in FAU’s dual program, students must maintain a 3.0 high school GPA, and earn at least a C or 2.0 in each FAU class. Bush maintained a 3.8 GPA.
“I started when I was 13 at Broward College,” said Bush. “So I was able to finish it before four years.”
And while the Bush family enrolled her in FAU-HS dual program to save thousands of dollars on college tuition, Grace Bush isn’t the first to do so in her family. The third children of nine kids, Grace’s older siblings were also enrolled in FAU-HS’s dual program. The eldest graduated from FAU at 18, and is working towards her master’s degree, while the second oldest, 17, is graduating from the same dual program this summer.
Looking forward, Bush has her eyes set on becoming the chief Supreme Court justice of the United States, which seems achievable before she’s able to have her first legal drink.
