Tanishq Abraham told KXTV that it “feels good to graduate with three Associate’s degrees,” which he earned in math and physical science, general science and foreign language studies.
Abraham graduated from high school at the age of 10 and has been taking classes at ARC since he was 7 years old, according to a report by NBC’s KCRA. Home-schooled by his mother, Abraham earned a 4.0 GPA in high school.
He’s been a member of Mensa International, an academic and social organization for people whose IQs fall in the top 2% of the population, since he was four, according to the same report.
“The assumption is that he’s the all-time youngest,” a spokesman from American River College told KCRA. “But we don’t have all the archives to completely confirm. He was definitely the youngest this year.” This summer he plans to take a Calculus II course.
