Ice skating sensation Rachael Flatt has two silver Olympic medals under her belt, repped the U.S. at the 2010 Winter Olympics and is ranked No. 9 in the world, but now the 17-year-old has something else to celebrate -- her high school diploma.

"I'm officially done with high school!! Woohoo!" she tweeted on Monday. "Great graduation and a fun party! :) What an amazing year!"

The Cheyenne Mountain High School honors student has been chronicling all the moments leading up to her "bittersweet" graduation ceremony. She even posted this TwitPic of herself wearing a white cap and gown to the event in Colorado Springs, Colo.

As for her plans for the future, Rachael will continue to skate and make public appearances while making her education a top priority. The California native will be returning west to attend Stanford University in the fall.
Rachael isn't the only celeb who's stoked about her achievement -- Selena Gomez scored her diploma earlier this month, too. The 17-year-old made the announcement on Facebook, and also said she filmed a graduation scene for her upcoming movie Monte Carlo on the same day. Congrats to all our fave grads!
