DS (currently a junior in high school) will apply to USNA for the class of 2016 and is very excited to be attending NASS this summer. At the end of 1st semester senior year, he will have the credits/requirements needed to graduate early from high school. From USNA's perspective, would graduating early from high school be viewed favorably or unfavorably? He was interested in getting some work experience and/or taking some college classes but NOT if it could negatively impact his USNA application. He currently has a 3.92 weighted GPA, is in top 25% of his class, is taking Calculus (honors, not AP) and 3 AP classes (English, Psych and Environmental Science) as well as some other electives. If he leaves high school early, one downside is that he will only complete half of the year of physics (regular), computer science (honors), 4th year Spanish (honors), AP English and AP Econ that he was scheduled to take. Any/all insights would be appreciated. Thank you.
