He was homeschooled up until the age of 9 where at this point he began to outpace his mother’s homeschooling in math and science.
Our young lad was even then studying literature from college textbooks. Upon reaching 11 where his mother became really challenged with teaching Algebra II, his parents decided to enroll him in Morehouse College to audit mathematics.
In his first class, College Algebra, he scored 105. His next course was precalculus where his grade was 99.
Stephen is working on his triple major in pre-med, math and computer science at Morehouse College. Read more about this inspiring teen in the Milwaukee Courier.
