GRADUATE RECOGNITION CEREMONIES

AFHE hosts two graduate recognition ceremonies each year, one for junior high and one for senior high. These events are beautiful, reverent, meaningful celebrations of important milestones in a homeschooled student’s life … the transition from junior to senior high and graduation from senior high. Participation in these ceremonies is only open to AFHE members and is limited to students who have been educated at home by their parents in accordance with ARS §15-802.
