*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.
- 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)
