Weatherly was educated at Fairfield Country Day School, then matriculated from Brooks School in North Andover, Massachusetts. Weatherly enrolled at Boston University, Menlo College, and then attended American University but did not graduate, as he decided to drop his studies and become an actor. At that time, Michael was equally interested in music, and was even a member of a band, which actally didn’t have much success, but sespite this fact, Weatherly did not forget his passion for music, and subsequently created several songs for “NCIS’s” soundtrack, which added somewhat to Michael’s net worth.
