“Black-ish” star Yara Shahidi just graduated from high school, and the actress already announced that she will be going to Harvard next year.

On her Instagram account, the teen actress posted a photo of herself on her Graduation Day. She also shared a snap of herself wearing a Harvard sweater. The actress’ decision did not come easy for her since she was also accepted in the three other Ivy League schools that she applied for. While speaking with Seventeen at that time, Shahidi said that she did not receive rejection letters from the four prestigious institutions.

“I did get all of my college acceptances and I’m keeping them close to the belt as of right now, but I got into every college I applied to. So that’s really exciting. I found all of that out last week. My college plans are all up in the air, but I will choose within the next month,” she said.

In October of last year, Shahidi announced that she will be deferring her college education for an entire year. In an interview with People, the young actress acknowledged the possibility of being criticized for her decision just like what happened to former President Barack Obama’s daughter, Malia Obama.

“I’ve been working more than half of my life and that’s always been balanced with school and all of the other responsibilities, so to have a year to focus on work and to focus on specified interests will be nice before I pick a career and choose what I want to study and my life path,” she explained.

Meanwhile, Shahidi will headline an upcoming “Black-ish” spinoff on Freeform. Creator Kenya Barris originally pitched the concept to ABC, but the network handed it over to Freeform. The yet-to-be-titled spinoff will follow the life of Zoey in college. Ahead of its release, “Black-ish” released a backdoor pilot in Season 3 where Dre (Anthony Anderson) dropped Zoey off at the university to attend an orientation.

In episode 23, titled “Liberal Arts,” Zoey proved to her dad that she’s already a grown up. She refused to be told what to do and how to act. This made Dre emotional because his eldest child is now a college student. As of late, the release date for the “Black-ish” spinoff hasn’t been announced by Freeform.
