*Young actress and singer Keke Palmer graduated from high school a year early, thanks to a home schooling program, and is ready to begin working on her next album.

The 16-year-old began her career in 2004 and has appeared on several shows and movies since. In 2007, she released her debut album.

Her list of accomplishments don’t end there, however. She received a 2010 BET “Youngstars” award last month.

She recently signed a multi-album recording contract with Interscope Records and is planning to release her second album this fall.

Palmer is currently the star of Nickelodeon TV series, “True Jackson VP.”

Now that she has a career ahead of her, and high school behind her, she is looking forward to attending college in the future.
