*Please note that graduates are not required to attend the Graduation Ceremony.

Rosewood Academy offers a very special joint High School Graduation Ceremony every year.

What makes this ceremony so special?

The families of course!  We are homeschoolers, so we do not have to follow tradition.  We can do things our own way.  You can choose to present your child's diploma or request that the administrator of Rosewood Academy do so.  Your child can give a performance or a speech if they so choose.  We encourage the graduates to bring samples of their work, scrapbooks, pictures, experiments, creation, etc... to put on display.






  • Cap & Gowns - Graduates are responsible for providing their own cap & gown.  You can wear whatever color/style of cap & gown you choose.  Graduates are also welcome to order any adornment (such as an "Honors" stole, etc. OTHER than a Valedictorian or Salutatorian Stole). Graduates are welcome to personalize their caps if they would like (see photo above - Rated G only, please)
  • Transcripts, Diploma, and Padded Diploma Cover will be provided.
  • All High School Graduates must complete and submit a Final Transcript Request Form, Graduation Registration Form, and all fees by April 1st. The link for the forms is at the top of this page.
  • Valedictorian/Salutatorian will be awarded on basis of ACT/SAT scores.  Student  must have been enrolled with Rosewood Academy for one complete year, attend the ceremony, and commit to giving a speech to be eligible for this honor and registered for the graduation ceremony no later than April 1st.

Fees - Payments, transcripts, and Graduation Registration Form must be postmarked by the deadline dates.

  • April 1 - $50.00 graduation fee which includes diploma and transcripts.
  • Please note:  All fees, transcripts, and Graduation Registration Forms are due no later than April 1st and are non-refundable after April 1st.
  •  If you register and/or pay for graduation after April 1st, the graduation fee is as follows:  April 2 - April 15:  $75.00,  April 16 - April 30:  $100.00, May 1 - May 15:  $150.00, after May 16: $200.00 (My suggestion is to sign up and pay by April 1st). No new registration will be taken after May 19.  No exceptions. Please don't ask.
  • ***April 15 is deadling for anyone wishing to participate in the graduation slideshow.  Those who register for graduation after April 15 will not be included in the slideshow.  Pictures for slideshow deadline is April 15 and will be posted to a closed Facebook page.  Rosewood has a deadline to meet for the slideshow pictures.  No exceptions will be made for accepting pictures after April 15.
  • Note on Transcripts - I realize that the school year does not "officially" end April 15. Please turn in Transcript Request Forms with projected subjects, grades, etc.. We can update them as needed.  We can also add in ACT scores later if they are pending.




Mail in a check, money order, or cashier's check to the address below.

 Please also include the Graduation Registration Form and Transcript Request Form
