Jean had a pretty normal chilhood. She even had friends in elementary school, her best friend being Annie Richardson. They were pretty close and even helped each other out in school, even though Jean was really gifted, not just mentally, but athletically as well.

All of it came to a halt when Annie Richardson was crossing the street and was hit by a car. Jean, in her panic ran over to comfort Annie, but in doing so, awakened her latent mutant powers of Telepathy. When Annie was dying, Jean felt every emotion of Annie's first hand. It was too much for Jean to comprehend, and she fell into a catatonic state.

While she was in this state, Professor Charles Xavier came into her home and talked with Jean's parents, and convinced them to allow her to stay at his mansion. He promised them he would get her out of this state, and return her to normal. That was the promise. In practice, Professor Xavier saw, mentally, what Jean went through and erected mental barriers so her psychic abilities wouldn't go out of control and that they would develop normally.

While in the mansion, She still attended school, like any other. Made friends with a great deal of people, and tried to live a normal life there. However, life at the Xavier Institute is rarely 'normal', as she has faced gigantic mutant hunting robots, called Sentinels, and was able to defeat them. She also faced Magneto ane the Brotherhood of Mutants on several occasions. All of this was done under the guise of 'Marvel Girl', since she wanted to keep her identity a secret and still lead a normal life.

Eventually, she was able to graduate high school, and earn a Doctrite in Genetics while at the Institute, and also earn a doctrite in biology to earn the title of Doctor. Having earned the Doctrite in Biology in college, she returned to the Institute a much stronger woman than she was when she left, even while keeping the Phoenix Power inside of her and never to come out.
