Graduation Information

Welcome Graduating Class!

WEST is thrilled to be offering an opportunity for you and others to celebrate your schooling accomplishments with a high school graduation ceremony at WEST. 


Any homeschool student may take part in the WEST sponsored graduation ceremony.

As you look to participate in the WEST sponsored commencement ceremony, you will find information below.  You may also request a detailed information packet that includes the fees, planning and preparation process.

The commencement ceremony is a beautiful reflection of the students graduating. 

WEST acknowledges this milestone by assisting parents and students with planning meetings, caps/gowns, securing a graduation venue, music - including a choir, off-setting some costs, guiding the ceremony planning, various speeches and timeline.

Families share in the cost of commencement, planning, preparation and presentation.
