Channing Tatum is furthering his education.

On Thursday, Harvard Business School announced via Facebook that the 36-year-old actor has enrolled in one of its executive education courses. Throughout the month of June, Channing will join three other megastars, rapper-turned-actor LL Cool J and NBA players Pau Gasol and Chris Paul, in a class taught by Professor Anita Elberse.

Professor Elberse took to Twitter to share her excitement, posting a pic of her famous students. “So yeah, this is happening,” she wrote. “Four legends signed up to take my ExecEd course."

LL also weighed in on the experience, tweeting, “You’re never too cool to learn!"

As for Tatum, in the past he has described himself as a bad student and has been candid about his struggle with A.D.H.D. and dyslexia. "I have never considered myself a very smart person, for a lot of reasons,” he confessed to the New York Times in October 2014. “Not having early success on that one path messes with you. You get lumped in classes with kids with autism and Down Syndrome, and you look around and say, ‘OK, so this is where I’m at.’ Or you get put in the typical classes and you say, 'All right, I’m obviously not like these kids either.’ So you’re kind of nowhere. You’re just different. The system is broken. If we can streamline a multibillion-dollar company, we should be able to help kids who struggle the way I did."
