Duggar Graduation

Congratulations to Jinger and Joseph Duggar on their graduation!






On another note, the Bates' eight-week TLC series premieres on Monday, August 13th, at 9 PM EST/8PM CST. Can you guess the name? United Bates of America! Thanks to one of our loyal readers for giving us the inside scoop last month. We were eager to share but had to wait until the title was officially announced.

Is 19 Kids and Counting going to continue? I didn't see them in the lineup for the fall season. Also, for some reason the Bates show was suppose to be during the summer with only having 8 episodes. Is the change because 19 Kids and Counting is not going to continue or because it has been cancelled?

Brittani, one of the positives of being schooled at home is that you can move at your own pace. If you understand something, you can move on sooner than if you were in a class setting. If one of the Duggars graduates early, it's probably because they were ahead of schedule in their subjects. Hope that helps!

I thought that Josh graduated when he was 16. Jinger is 18 and Joseph is 17. They seem to be graduating later and later.

United Bates of America is cute!! :-) I'm kind of suprised that TLC is doing another show on a large family. I hope they both last a long time though! I love watching the show! =D xD

It just depends how fast they get done. For some it takes longer than others.

what did they gradute from. they never went to college so it cannot be that. guess it is from home schooling.

Bayley said...

@prettygirl,
They graduated from homeschool.

Jinger may have gotten a high school diploma and Joseph a GED. I'm saying that because Jessa continued her education to age 18 and got a high school diploma. Joseph may have been a little behind in getting his GED with all the field trips-book tour, overseas trip they did last year.
But again Joseph may have also gotten a high school diploma.
Congrats to both Jinger and Jospeh

Homeschoolers can graduate from high school just like other kids. The Average age is 17-18!

Lisa said...

It's their graduation from high school, which is obviously done via homeschool. Congrats to Jinger and Joseph! Best of luck in your futures :)

Libby said...

thats cool! congrats Jinger and Joseph!

I thought Jinger would've graduated last year.....well, either way I'm glad they're able to share the celebration. Makes me sometimes wonder if there'll be any double weddings among the Duggars.....another money-saver if 2 get engaged around the same time.
So the name is out already, huh? I saw it on Facebook too. Interesting name, and I look forward to watching it. I hope the Duggars will be back, but they have to do what's best for them.

Pretty girl,

they graduated from highscool.Jinger is 18 going on 19, and Joseph is 17.
They work at their own pace to get her done! :)

Bayley,

with homeschool, every one of their graduates may be different aged. It depends on the person, if they are working to get it done early, or taking the time to wait until their 18. Some have a slower pace then others. Some purpose to be done early. It's different for every one.

Lily and Ellie,

Aren't Jinger and Joseph different ages? How did they graduate at the same time? Is Joseph ahead? Thanks for posting this, anyway. I know this is pretty late, but Congratulations to them!

Hi Anonymous,

Jinger (just turned 19) and Joseph (just turned 18) are a year apart, but Joseph is a year ahead in school.
