Prince Jackson proudly donned a cap and gown Saturday as he became a high school graduate ... with honors no less.

Michael Jackson's oldest son got his diploma from the exclusive Buckley School in the San Fernando Valley.  

La ToyaKatherine, Paris and other family members cheered Prince on.  When Prince's name was announced the fam stood up, screamed and whistled.  He flashed a big smile as he grabbed his diploma.

Prince has dabbled in entertainment -- appearing in the finale of "90210" -- but for now he's going the college route, but he's not going too far. Prince says he's going to Loyola Marymount University in L.A.

Congrats.
