Alabama Homeschooling Family Sends Six of Ten Children to College By Age Twelve...
MONTGOMERY – A homeschooling family from Montgomery, Alabama is wowing many across the nation as six of their ten children have enrolled in college by the age of twelve, and the four remaining hope to do the same.

Kip and Mona Lisa Harding state that they are simply raising the “average family,” but credit their children’s success to homeschooling and encouraging their children to pursue their passions at a young age.

“We just felt like it was our responsibility,” mother Mona Lisa told reporters about the decision to homeschool. “That’s a big choice, and [we] wanted to be totally in control and make sure they had the right upbringing, and they accelerated because of it.”

When asked what she is doing that her friends are not, 10-year-old Katrinnah replied, “I guess I’m staying home instead of going to school, and I’m doing it faster.”

The four oldest Harding children have all graduated from college and are pursuing lucrative careers.

Heath Harding, now 17, was the youngest student ever to graduate from Huntingdon College. He graduated at 15 went on to obtain a master’s degree in computer science.

His sister Serennah, 22, is the youngest female physician in the U.S., and is pursuing a career as a Navy doctor.

Rosannah, 20, has been working as an architect since she was 18. She credits homeschooling and studying on her own for her success.

“We just [studied] at our own pace,” she told reporters. “Rather than a class of 30, we were a class of three. So, we each did it at our own pace and we just accelerated.”

Young blood: What’s it like to become a physician at age 22?..


New graduate Serennah E. Harding, DO, is the youngest DO in the nation, according to AOA records. At 22, she is one of the youngest physicians in the United States, according to the Georgia Campus-Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Suwanee.

Homeschooled on an accelerated path alongside her siblings, Dr. Harding entered college full time at the tender age of 12. She graduated at 17 and enrolled in graduate school at GA-PCOM, then started medical school there a year later. She graduated last month and will soon begin a residency in internal medicine at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

I believe it. Public schools don't teach kids to think. They don't offer individual help, for those behind and for those who are ahead who need more of a challenge. It's a one size fits all clusterf##k.

My oldest was soooo bored in school. It didn't challenge her at all. She scored in the 90th percentile in all her testing and wanted to be challenged.

Now she goes to a private school, she loves it, she gets challenged. She is actually learning and progressing at a rate more specific to her.

Public school = indoctrinating babysitting.

That's child abuse. While they may be more than academically qualified they aren't socially ready. They are too young. The family is robbing them of their high school carefree years and their college growing up years. It's scary that any parent would do this.
