Before his ninth grade year, Henry Paiste made a difficult decision. So far, it's paying off.
He loves playing tennis and wants to go as far as he can in the sport. After attending middle school at Moravian Academy, he decided to start being home schooled in order to focus more on his tennis game.
This past school year while his friends were in class, he was either studying at home or working on his game.
"It was tough," he said. "I didn't know what to expect going into home schooling. I miss [friends from school], but I have no regrets. I love what I'm doing now."
