No more teachers, no more books! Reality star Kylie Jenner wrote on Tuesday, July 21, that she is cruising this summer after recently graduating high school last week.

Kris and Caitlyn Jenner's youngest daughter, 17, tweeted her exciting news in a series of thoughts before nodding off to dreamland in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

A source confirms to Us Weekly that Kylie has indeed completed her high school education.

While Kylie has shared frequent updates of her celebrity lifestyle (most recently at the Paper Towns premiere with her sister Kendall and pals) via social media, the teen's big sister Kim Kardashian shared a more down-to-earth side to her sibling in a recent interview.

“She’s always with her friends and having fun and people would question, ‘Are you going to school?’” Kardashian, 34, told Access Hollywood in an interview this past May. "She goes to school. She’s homeschooled."

Kylie has completed school much sooner than anticipated. "She has a year left," Kardashian said in May. "She goes to school every single day. Perception can be reality and people assume maybe she’s not in school because she’s not posting about being in school all the time."

Around that time, Kylie was rumored to have dropped out of school, a claim that the teen directly addressed and squashed via Snapchat. "I do school every weekday," she tweeted in May. "Again don't believe everything you read."

Kardashian further defended Kylie, saying she and Kendall were precocious and thoughtful kids. "They know that all their friends aren't going on private jets," North West's mom dished. "They know that they are growing up with a life of privilege, but they are super grounded and responsible."

Indeed, Kylie purchased her very own home in Calabasas, Calif., this past February for $2.7 million. "I'm moving out when I turn 18," she later told Teen Vogue in its May 2015 cover story. "I'm ready to live on my own. It's a really big step, but I'm ready… I wanted a house near my family in a quiet neighborhood with a front yard and a backyard that my dog will like. Also, I have so many shoes, and none of them fit in my old closet."
