CARY, N.C. (AP) — A 15-year-old math whiz in North Carolina has earned a scholarship to Stanford University.

WRAL reported Wednesday that Kenan Hasanaliyev is a standout student at Triangle Math and Science Academy in the Raleigh suburb of Cary.

He earned math credits in sixth grade that put him three grades ahead. Since then, he’s mastered AP Calculus and Calculus 2 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He’s also taken graduate-level math classes.

Kenan is not old enough to drive. He said his parents will move out to California with him. Stanford is located between San Francisco and San Jose.
