Home-Schooled Student, 17, to Graduate from Morehouse with Triple Major in Pre-Med

Stephen Stafford II, a 17-year-old from Lithonia, Georgia, is set to graduate Morehouse College with a triple major, with plans to finish medical school by 22.

According to the Black Home School website, Stephen began his education at age 2 while playing school with his older sister. His mother eventually decided to teach him at home after hearing about the achievement gap for young black males in public schools.

By the time Stephen was 11, his mother found that he was too smart for her to teach and had him sign up for Algebra II at Morehouse College in Atlanta. The next year, Stephen aced pre-calculus and officially enrolled at the historic school.

Having been named one of the “World’s 50 Smartest Teenagers,” Stephen, a classically-trained pianist, is poised to graduate this year with a triple major in pre-med, mathematics and computer science.

After graduation from Morehouse, he plans to attend its School of Medicine, specializing in obstetrics and fertility.
