This Monday, September 4, 2023, marks the start of the new school year for all schoolchildren, middle and high school students in France. A new school year synonymous with renewal for all studentswhether they are 5, 12 or 17 years old.
A key moment of the year that several stars have yet missed in their youth. Indeed, several actors or even singers have seen their careers take off when they had not yet reached adulthood. This is the case of Britney Spears, Ryan Gosling, Christina Aguilera or even Justin Timberlakewho made their child debut in the “Mickey Mouse Club” on the channel disney.
A busy schedule and an already active professional life which, on the other hand, did not allow these American stars to go to school… Thustheir parents had no choice but to homeschool them… And it is the same for several singers of the following generations of artists like Selena Gomez or Justin Bieber who also saw their careers explode long before their majority!

The atypical school career of Serena Williams
If several show business stars, whether actors or singers, have experienced homeschooling, several top athletes have also had this same atypical school career. This is the case of Serena Williams who turned professional at the age of 15 and started playing tennis at only 3 years old.
And for good reason, very quickly father Serena Williams made the decision to take her daughter out of school so that she could focus on tennis. A homeschooling that did not prevent the famous American tennis player from graduating. Proof, Serena Williams went to college at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale in Florida where she studied fashion.
