Jaden Fragoso from "Child Genius" is one of the contestants featured in Season 2 of the Lifetime reality competition series. He is eleven years old and lives in San Antonio, Texas. His mother is Sarah Fragoso, Paleo diet blogger, while his father is John Fragoso, Chiropractor. His interests include music, math and cooking.

Smart beyond his years, Jaden Fragoso does not go to school, nor is he homeschooled, he is actually "unschooled." He is allowed to choose his own curriculum and does very little traditional work in textbooks. When Jaden was in a traditional school, he was a straight A, honor roll student. However, his parents were anxious that seven hours in a classroom each day would squash his creativity and freedom, thus deciding to "unschool" him. When posed the question of what he wants to be when he grows up, he confidently answered that at only 11 years old he doesn't really know what he wants to be, nor does he need to know.

Due to Jaden's unconventional schooling he thinks differently than the other kids, possibly giving him an advantage.
