Listen, we’re not saying college graduates are any smarter than anyone else (Steve Jobs didn’t have a diploma) and what the Kardashians have accomplished in the world of business as a family is unmatched. We were just curious as to the educational backgrounds the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars. You know, for fun. I mean, we know everything else.
Let’s start with momager Kris Jenner, who knows more about business than any business person that ever lived. College schmollege. Kris, 62, has a high school diploma from Clairemont High School in San Diego, CA. Still a boss b*tch! (And once unable to buy a tomato.)
According to her Wikipedia page, Kourtney Kardashian, 39, attended Marymount High School, a Roman Catholic all-girls school in Los Angeles. “Following graduation, she moved to Dallas, Texas, to attend Southern Methodist University for two years. Kourtney then lived in Tucson, Arizona, where she graduated from the University of Arizona with a bachelor's degree in Theatre Arts and a minor in Spanish.” Go Kourtney! She did admit to US Weekly that she “failed two classes in college because I was too nervous to give speeches.” The eldest Kardashian kid also applied to law school, but in the end decided not to go.
Kim Kardashian’s last diploma is from Marymount High School in Los Angeles. (And, no, she's not currently enrolled in law school.) Last April she attended her 20-year reunion, and stated of going back, "So my friends are worried that we're going to run into people that they were mean to... I feel so good about my conscience, I was so nice to everyone."
“My education didn't follow a traditional trajectory, but I'm thankful for my parents who listened and supported me when I was having trouble. I know you've been curious about this (it's one of the top questions Googled about me, apparently), so here are the ABCs of my education!” she wrote. “I went to Marymount in ninth grade, while Kourt and Kim were there, but after they left, I felt like I had no one to be with. I struggled really hard in school, so I took myself out of Marymount and forged my parents' names to enroll in Alexandria Academy. My dad was livid when he found out, and I was so scared, I was shaking. He told me, ‘I’m so pissed, but the fact that you put so much effort into all of this ... I'm going to let you do this. But you have to keep a certain GPA.’ Alexandria Academy is not at-home, you go to a school, and there are tutors that give you individual attention. I needed that. I really did not know one person there. I knew college wasn't for me, and I graduated from Alexandria with honors — which I never would've done in a traditional school.”
Rob Kardashian, 31, graduated from University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business in 2009, and in 2012 tweeted that he would be returning to the school to study law. According to The Atlantic, at the time Rob Jr. wrote, “Going to Law School very soon and so excited and can't wait! School just never ends for me! #UniversityofSouthernCal #Trojans #FightOn” However, theUniversity of Southern California Gould School of Law denied this, and stated via its Twitter account that Kardashian had not even applied.
Although Kylie Jenner, 21, had a high school graduation party thrown for her by family friend Ryan Seacrest, she revealed at the time that she had no immediate plans to attend college, but would start a cosmetics company. That has since landed her on the cover of Forbes.
"I'm not going to college," she told Interview Magazine. "I have done everything to prepare for college, so if I wanted to in the future, I could go at any time. But I’m not planning on going anytime soon."
According to Vogue, both Kylie and Kendall were homeschooled from 2012 when they left their school, Sierra Canyon School, “and were instead educated via a private tutor in their Calabasas home.”
“I had to unfollow all my friends that I went to school with. They probably all thought I hated them but I just couldn't see it, you know, because they would always post photos and they were all at the prom and I was like, 'Can't see it.' It really just made me sad.”
