Alicia Keys
Regular schooling was not for Alicia Keys! The musician enrolled at the Performing Arts School in Manhattan as a teenager, where she signed with Columbia Records at age 15. As if that wasn't already impressive enough, Keys graduated with honors by age 16 and was accepted into Columbia University on a scholarship. She was four weeks into college when she had to drop out due to her budding music career.
