Yes, it's true. He'd been complaining about how boring his correspondence bio lab course is (I thought it was fun but what do I know?) so we'd been looking for a way to get him into a "real lab" course for chemistry. Turns out our local technical college offers a high school level chemistry course starting a week from Monday so we signed him up. We were actually intending to sign up for the "General Chemistry" (college-level) course, which I'm sure Klaus could handle, but it's a lot more intense and since he hasn't had much chemistry before, so would require some tutoring from Dad, in addition to finishing his other courses at the same time, we decided it better to let him get his feet wet with a less demanding course.
Still, we're very proud of our college man! :D
