14-year-old boy graduates from high school and college on the same day, set to earn PhD in Chemical Engineering

An exceptional 14-year-old boy named Matthew McKenzie has achieved an exceptional feat in the United States after graduating from high school and college on the same day.

Matthew McKenzie completed his high school courses and also graduated from Chattahoochee Technical College in Georgia with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies.

To the excitement of many, particularly his parent, the young genius received his high school Diploma the same day he received a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Chattahoochee Technical College.

Growing up, Matthew McKenzie was already reading advanced books at the age of 4 before proceeding to enroll in college at the age of 11. His fast track through school is a result of an intense homeschool program, which he began in second grade.

“We would pull material from different textbooks and custom create his curriculum,” his mother, Monique McCord, narrated.

Monique McCord also narrated that at the time Matthew started college, she walks him to class so as to ensure he adapts with the new environment. “I started off walking him to class and then the environment got a little more comfortable, then he started walking himself, so he eased into the transition,” she said.

Speaking on his exceptional feat, Matthew McKenzie explained that he now plans to become a cosmetic chemist and plans to attend Kennesaw State University to study biochemistry and transfer to Georgia Tech for his Master’s Degree and PhD in Chemical Engineering.
