In fifth grade, Haley Taylor Schlitz was falling a bit behind in school and distracted.
Her parents knew she was smart enough to do well and wanted to get her tested for the gifted and talented program, but couldn’t at her school. They decided to get her independently tested, and decided home school would be a better option so she could go at her own pace. She graduated from high school at 13.
Now, at 16, she’s preparing to graduate from Texas Woman’s University with a degree in interdisciplinary studies and is heading to Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law in Dallas. With a law degree, Schlitz said she hopes to help other young people realize different paths to higher education and maybe even start a school.
