Curtis Lawrence III says he'll be attending Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University where he'll be double majoring in biology and computer science.
The teen was accepted to 14 colleges – including Harvard, Yale, Howard, Morehouse and Morgan – and has received $1.6 million in scholarships for the fall.
His mother Malene said the process for preparing for college started when her son was in the seventh grade.
