Our daughter began taking classes full-time at IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis) at age 13 in the fall of 2003. Technically she's homeschooled, but participates in a program called SPAN (Special Program for Academic Nurturing), where she earns both High School and College credit for her classes. She is now finishing up her 3rd semester. SPAN is available for High School students (grades 9-12). They can participate in a couple of classes, or attend full time. This program has been a God-send for us.
