Will Smith Homeschooled his two children until they were 9 & 7


Will Smith Pays $1M to Lease School For His Kids



Hollywood superstar Will Smith has taken hands-on parenting to a whole new level. The actor is reportedly investing more than $1 million in a new school near his California home. According to reports, Smith has paid $889,000 to lease the Indian Hills High School, after failing to find a suitable institute for his two young children – nine year-old Jaden and seven year-old Willow.

Until now the blockbuster actor and his wife, fellow actor Jada Pinkett Smith have been homeschooling the two children. The school, located in Calabasas, CA, has been renamed the New Village Academy of Calabasas

“Will is leasing the campus for three years, plus he’ll cover all costs such as utilities,” said a Smith family spokesman. “The academy will be run privately, and will include prekindergarten through grade six.”

Son Jaden starred opposite his famous father in the movie “The Pursuit of Happiness.” Willow, for her part, made an appearance in Smith’s blockbuster hit “I Am Legend.”
