Michael Jackson's children Paris and Prince Michael at the Grammys Michael Jackson's children, who've been home-schooled to date, will head to an unidentified private school in September, Katherine Jackson told the Daily Mail.  

According to their grandma, Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket -- 13, 12 and 8, respectively -- have schoolwork daily as well as karate and swimming. 

"I've tried to follow the way Michael was raising them," she said. "But they don't have friends. ... They have private lessons at home. They'll be going to a private school in September for the first time."

Katherine Jackson's attorney told the Associated Press that the kids also enjoy playing around with beginner filmmaking -- as seen online in videos allegedly hacked from a family computer and leaked in May.
