A 12-year-old in North Carolina used the downtime he had during the pandemic to take on a few extra classes in school.

Now, one year later, Mike Wimmer, of Salisbury, is getting ready to graduate high school and college -- in the same week.

Wimmer completed four years of high school and a two-year associate's degree all in one year.

But this wasn't always Wimmer's plan, he said.

He said his GPA at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is 4. 0, while his high school GPA is 5. 45.

Despite being several years younger than his classmates, Wimmer said he gets along well with them -- and was even nominated to Homecoming Court last year.

Wimmer, who has an interest in robotics, told CNN that he's "the math and science guy. " He's always had an affinity for technology -- he got his first iPad when he was 18 months old, and wondered how it worked.

With graduation just a few weeks away, Wimmer said he's weighing many options for his next steps.

"A lot of people think I've given up my childhood or somehow lost it," Wimmer said, "and I say to them that I'm having the time of my life. "
