15-year-old Boy Becomes Youngest Graduate of University of Nevada – Fifth Degree in 4-years

A 15-year-old boy has become the youngest person ever to graduate from the University of Nevada — making it his fifth degree in just four years.

Child prodigy Jack Rico, from California, had already earned four associate’s degrees by the time he was 13 years old, DailyMail reports.

He has now completed his bachelor’s degree in history at University of Nevada, Las Vegas with an impressive grade point average of 3.78.

Jack in an interview with the school expressed;

“I honestly loved all the classes I took. The majority of my classes were through the history or film departments, and every class taught me something different.”

Jack had been homeschooled by his mother, Ru Andrade, but after four years of teaching him everything she could, she began struggling to find new things for him to learn.

‘I had given everything I had, and he was smarter than me,’ his mom told Fox News.

At age 11, he took a placement exam at Fullerton College — which offered a K-12 bridge program — and scored so high that they put him in college-level courses.

Within two years of studying there, he earned four associate degrees — one in each concentration of history, social behavior, art and human expression, and social science.

At the time, he became the youngest person to graduate from a college in California, earning a perfect 4.0 GPA.

When he was 14, he started taking classes at the University of Nevada. He explained how he buckled down and studied even more despite fun distractions calling his attention.
