Our 2024 Graduation Ceremony is slated for Saturday afternoon, May 18th, at Gassaway Baptist Church.
Details below are from 2023 but should be similar for 2024. Watch for updated information late this year.
CHEWV has been helping families commemorate the milestone of high school graduation since 1993. We invite every CHEWV member family to join us in this year’s celebration! This event is not only your special day, but it also encourages young families just beginning that the homeschool journey is worth it.
Below are quick FAQs, deadlines, and a registration link. A photo DVD slideshow also gives a glimpse into past graduations. We hope these answer your graduation questions, but if not, please feel free to contact the Graduation Coordinator at email@example.com.

What happens at a graduation?
For those of you who haven’t attended a commencement with us in the past, the graduates proceed down the aisle in last-name alphabetical order and are seated with their families. Then, as each graduate is introduced, he or she steps forward with parents to the podium. The parents and/or graduate may give a brief presentation, or the diploma may simply be presented. Although most families use their 2-3 minute opportunity, you’re under no obligation to say anything – a hug can say it all!
Once all diplomas are awarded and everyone seated, we usually have a short program. Immediately following the graduates’ recessional, we would like them to reassemble for a group picture for CHEWV; after that you’re welcome to take additional photos with family and guests before leaving the sanctuary.
