Education of Each Kardashian And The Story Behind It
Keeping Up With The Kardashians stopped being a mere television reality show that focuses on the professional and professional lives of the Kardashian–Jenner blended family, and became a vast, bustling empire that launched these girls to stardom, even the youngest ones like Kylie and Kendall Jenner.
So we are pretty sure that while you're building a brand and investing on various side ventures, you don't have much time to bury your head inside school books, and that seems to be the reality for this sisters' clan. Have you ever wondered how far the Kardashians got into school?
Most of them decided to bypass the classroom and gain some real-life experience instead, while others chose to give us a surprise with some shocking details. Without further ado, let's delve into the education record of this family and figure out who is taking the lead when it comes to the academia.
1. Kimberly Kardashian
It should come as no surprise, but Kim was a social butterfly when she attended Marymount High School in Los Angeles, which is a Catholic institution just for girls. She won to superlative honors in her school's yearbook, such as the most likely "to Meet Her Husband at the Million Man March" and "to Lie About Her Ethnicity."
After earning her diploma, she enrolled at Pierce College, a community college located in Woodland Hills, CA; however, she dropped out shortly. But that isn't the end of the model when it comes to her education. She told Wonderland in 2016 her intention to further her education at an older age by going to law school like her dad.
2. Kris Jenner
The matriarch of the clan is the mastermind behind the empire, so you might think she has her home office filled with college degrees; well, not exactly! The entrepreneur went to Clairemont High School in San Diego, but during that time, she dated a man ten years senior, as stated in the book The Kardashians: An American Drama.
Once Kris had her high school diploma in hand, she said goodbye to education once and for all since she married Robert Kardashian when she was only 22 years old, as reported by Harper's Bazaar. Therefore, she never stepped on a college campus as a student.
3. Kourtney Kardashian
As the oldest sister, perhaps Kourtney felt she needed to set a good example for younger generations, so after also graduating from Marymount, she made a move to the Lone Star State and became a college student at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.
But after two years there, she was transferred to the University of Arizona. This institution is pretty famous for its wild parties, but that was not an obstacle for Kourtney. In 2002, she received a degree in Theatre Arts with a minor in Spanish. Us Weekly said Kourtney has given thought to law school applying, but she withdrew afterward.
4. Robert Kardashian
With his big sis' lead, Rob also enrolled in college after high school. He graduated from the prestigious University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business in 2009 after completing a four-year program, according to Hollywood Reporter. His late father's career path also influenced Rob since he also pursued a degree in law.
A bachelor's degree was not enough, and Rob pushed his education to the maximum in 2012 when he announced on a tweet he was attending USC's Gould School of Law. However, the school answered to his post saying: "News to us. Wish him luck at the law school he's really attending." He hadn't even applied. OMG!
5. Kylie Jenner
By the time the little Kylie entered high school, KUWTK was at its peak popularity, so she eventually left her regular institution to be homeschooled through Laurel Springs. However, this was tough for her since she missed all the good part of those years and even her prom.
Despite the struggles, she managed to complete her studies, and in July 2015, she shared a photo with a cap and gown, and her diploma. As for high education, she doesn't have any current plans. "If I wanted to in the future, I could go at any time. But I'm not planning on going anytime soon," she said to Interview magazine in 2015.
6. Kendall Jenner
The model followed the path of her sisters, attending the same all-girl school, but ultimately took the homeschool route just like Kylie with Laurel Springs High School, according to Daily Mail. However, her graduation was somewhat glossed over in 2014, and she celebrated it in 2015 along with her sister, who was a year behind her.
They threw a glamorous and fun party that honored both Kendall and Kylie. With a solid career as a supermodel, Kendall explained to Vogue magazine, "you talk to people, and they say the reason they went to college was to get a job, but I already have a job." Should modeling be over for her, we are sure she'll have plenty of options.

7. Khloe Kardashian
Being close in age to Kim and Kourtney, the youngest one of the clan had the opportunity to join them during her high school years in the Catholic school. However, after her eldest sisters graduated, she found herself very unhappy and alone. Khloe was not as popular as Kim and Kourtney, and her grades started to suffer.
She explained to Daily Mail, "I struggled really hard in school, so I took myself out of Marymount and forged my parents' names to enroll in Alexandria Academy." This untraditional school is geared toward prodigies and kids in the entertainment industry. Khloe excelled in it and graduated with honors, but she said college wasn't for her.
We never imagined that some of the Kardashians were so well-prepared academically speaking, but we guess Hollywood gives us some surprises now and again.
