2018 GHEA Graduation Ceremony | Georgia Home Education Association

GHEA offers an annual High School Graduate Recognition Ceremony for the members of our organization. This is a great opportunity to commemorate the completion of your homeschool journey in a formal way. 

Due to the expenses associated with this event, a graduation participation fee does apply. Additionally, facility space is limited. We are able to accommodate a limited number of graduates on a first-come, first-served basis.

The 2024 ceremony (see photo above) was joyously held at 2:30 pm on Saturday, May 18, 2024 at Sunrise Baptist Church in Lawrenceville. Registration for the 2025 ceremony will open in late 2024 or early 2025 and will be announced here and on social media.

GHEA provides the venue, ceremony, guest speaker, special music, slide show, programs, photographer, biography booklets, a rose for Mom, and a reception afterwards. We also supply a diploma in a diploma cover for parents to present to their graduate on stage. While GHEA provides the ceremony, it is the parents that graduate their children from their homeschool.

In addition to the graduation fee, parents confirm that they've complied with the homeschool law in Georgia, send a copy of their two most recent DOI forms, provide the cap and gown, write a bio for their grad, and send in photos for the slide show.
