My daughter at 16 finished two years of high school and then attended a community college for one year and is now attending Auburn University. She is studying art and interior design. My son just finished two years of high school and is now registered for classes at a community college to study computer programming and Cisco Networking. He will earn an A.A.S. degree. Two questions: 1. What do you think of my kids finishing high school early and getting on with life? Both of my kids were sick of high school and had an immediate attitude change when they were allowed to go to college. They also work and are responsible for their own expenses, etc. They can also live at home for one or two years before transferring to a four year college. 2. Are private baptist colleges getting too expensive? Is there a move away from Christian colleges to community colleges/state universities?
