Kid is off to college

COLUMBUS, Kan. (AP) - December 22, 2009

At the age of 10.

The southeast Kansas boy has enrolled in a full load of classes for the spring semester at Pittsburg State University. The classes will include university choir, piano, chemistry, calculus and biology.

One of his parents will go with him to college classes.

But his father, Wesley Jaeger -- who's been home-schooling Alex for more than three years, says his son is ready. He says he "thrives" on new challenges.
