Young homeschool grad receives two degrees at 14

Julia Nepper was homeschooled for seven years. Although she spent a semester each in junior high and high school, the schools "wouldn't agree to promote her according to her abilities", so her parents enrolled her in community college at age 11.

Now 14, Julia is graduating with two associates degrees, a 4.0 GPA, and admission to UNC-Wilmington. She told Chelsea Keller of the Wilmington Star-News,
"I don't feel that this is a great achievement, because if you don't do pointless teenage things and care about doing well, you can go to college ... It's not that hard."
