Training/Education and When he Started Acting

Dylan O'Brien said, " I was in school, but I wasn't into school. I wasn't doing what I wanted to be doing in school, which was film studies. That was what I intended on doing, but I didn't go away to a university because I wanted to stay in L.A. and audition while I took classes, so I elected to go to a community college and just take G.E. courses. It was terrible."

According to, healthy.celeb.com,"Dylan attended and graduated from Mira Costa High School in 2009. Later in the fall of 2009, Dylan had planned to enroll himself at Syracuse University in NY to major in film, but her dropped that plan and moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career in the show business."
