In a previous interview, Caleb Anderson described Georgia Tech as his dream school. Months later, he’s about to become an aerospace engineering student there.
ATLANTA – Her story has been so incredible that it has inspired people all over the world. Today, a 12-year-old from Marietta takes the next giant leap in his educational journey – Georgia Tech.
11Alive first shared the story of Caleb Anderson in September – a young man who had just started his sophomore year at Chattahoochee Technical College before most people started high school. His specialty: aerospace engineering.
But that was far from the first milestone of brilliance that young Caleb had reached – far from it. His parents told 11Alive’s La’Tasha Givens in October that they knew he was special when he was able to sign 250 words when he was just 9 months old. He was reading the Constitution of the United States at the age of two.
“I’m grateful that I filmed Caleb when he was young because I don’t think people would have believed us that a 2 year old read the Constitution of the United States,” said Claire Anderson.
A few years later, he had qualified to join Mensa, the famous “High IQ Society”.
Caleb’s story has since traveled the world as others find inspiration in his knowledge and abilities at such a young age.
“I got a lot of attention,” Caleb joked in 2020.
Among the attention he received was that of the administrators of his dream school, Georgia Tech. There, the president of the aerospace engineering program arranged to meet with Caleb.
Less than a year later, Georgia Tech announced Thursday that Anderson has since been accepted to where he plans to continue his studies in aerospace engineering.
