The 2015 Graduation Ceremony Package is way to have a homeschool administrators (the parents) participate with a graduate (the son or daughter) in the NCHE graduation ceremony.

The Package includes:

  • Stage time in the ceremony for home educator(s) to award graduate diploma

This is a diploma issued by your school for your student. It is prepared by NCHE, and in addition, it is signed by the NCHE president.

NCHE prints a distinctive homeschool diploma enclosed in a hunter green cover. This diploma includes the student’s name, school name, and graduation date. The homeschool chief administrator will be responsible for signing the diploma to certify that the student has completed high school. Students who are participating in the NCHE graduation ceremony will be awarded the diploma by their parents.

Honor Cord

If your senior is graduating with a 3.75 GPA or higher, for an additional fee, you can recognize his achievement with a gold honor cord to be worn during the graduation ceremony. They will be mailed with the cap and gown.



NOTE: The graduate’s attire must be the NCHE hunter green gown and cap with gold tassel (purchased in the grad package). A cap and gown from a previous NCHE graduate may NOT be used. Failure to comply with the dress code forfeits ceremony participation.  With the exception of the NCHE Honor cord, graduation accessories are not allowed. Ceremony participants will receive their cap and gown by mail two to three weeks prior to the ceremony. Additional information will be emailed.


BASE PRICE: $225. $150 for those who qualify for long-term member discount.

An Honor Cord increases the price by $10.
