Cursory: David Balogun is one of the youngest-ever high school graduates after taking accelerated online classes remotely from his home. David will receive his official diploma in June with the other graduates and has already begun taking college-level courses.

David Balogun, a little genius, who unlike most kids his age graduated high school at just nine years old. According to Fox43, David is the youngest student ever to graduate from Reach Cyber Charter, based in Harrisburg, America, after entering the program in third grade.

The school allowed the brilliant kid to complete his classes online in his hometown of Bensalem, in Bucks County.

“One of the important things in our charter is we have accelerated pacing. So, kids can go year-round and if they’re very smart and on-track and motivated like David, they can move ahead at their own individual pace,” said the CEO of David’s school.

David said he made the decision simply because he trusted that he had the ability to do it.

“I wanted to do it because I had the ability to do it. So why not use those abilities for the greater good?” said David.

Prior to receiving his graduation certificate, David was awarded the 2022 Distinguished Student Award from the Pennsylvania Association of Gifted Education. He’s also a member of Mensa International, the largest high-IQ society in the world.

The 9-year-old is considering a career in either engineering, chemistry, or software development.
