He is a senior at St. John's Jesuit High School in Toledo.

In June, he was a delegate for the American Legion Buckeye Boys State program through post 45. He is also a member of the St. Aloysius youth group program, S.A.Y.
After graduation, Garrett plans to purse a career in engineering. He is the son of Theresa Kingsley.
