We have a 10 year-old Son who wants to graduate early so he can start college before a military career. While I know that those are serious long-range type goals, we want to support his dream as much as possible. All of that to ask, what is the best way to graduate early?
We have friends that are adding a few high school credits while in middle school to move ahead. I wondered if shortening his summer breaks and moving ahead with his school year early is a good method. I should mention that he is a very smart, but exhaustingly active, boy. We both get fatigued with school around April and have a hard time doubling-up on lessons, etc.
Because of that, I shy away from the accelerated school year option but I don't want to discount it if it truly is the best option for him.
