18 year old girl to graduate from college before graduating from high school

Eighteen-year-old Raven Osborne is about to get her college degree, before even graduating from High school. She told CBS News: "I graduate from college on May 5". Raven gets her college degree 17 days before her high school diploma, because she will graduate from high school on May 22.
CBS News reporter, Jericka Duncan who interviewed her said:
"When people hear that … they're going, 'What? How did she do that?'" Duncan said.
"Yeah they think I'm lying," Raven said.
The truth of the matter is, she isn't lying. She obtained her college degree through online classes, year-round community college and two years at Purdue University Northwest. Her semester-long college courses counted as a full year of high school credit.
"Sophomore, that was the most work. I had five high school classes, four college classes," Raven said.
Raven attends the 21st Century Charter High School in Gary, Indiana.

According to CBS News, the school is surrounded by dilapidated buildings, which is a common sight throughout the city. Everyone in the school is required to take college classes on a college campus in order to graduate. Some get very few credits.

Five of this year's High school 43 graduates have earned associate's degrees.
Kevin Teasley started the foundation that runs the school. He uses state funding for tuition and transportation to nearby college campuses.
"The one line item I want to see go up every single year is how much I'm spending on college," Teasley said. "When I started it was $10,000. Last year it was $85,000."

The good thing about the program is it helps a lot of poor and intelligent kids. Raven who now has a college degree said she didn't pay anything for her degree. When asked how much she paid for her college degree she said:
"Absolutely nothing," she said. "Not a dime."
After graduating both College and High School, Raven will be back at 21st Century Charter to become a teacher and will be earning a starting salary of $38,000per year.

Does it make sense no it does not, in Nigeria you need secondary school certificate before you can proceed to the university the only exception is if you sat for GEC and got your papers then you can take the university exams still you need a leaving secondary certificate.

What does being daft got to do with this? It's so unfortunate that we cannot express our minds in Nigeria without making negative comments and cursing!! We attack personalities than real issues. This is so unfortunate on Nigeria social media
