Graduation and the PHEAA Form
Back Email Article  Print Article



The home education law defines what is required for a homeschooled student to graduate from a home education program.


If a student in a home education program has not affiliated with one of the organizations that are authorized to grant a diploma recognized by the Department of Education, they may request that the superintendent sign the PHEAA form (PDF) as proof that they have completed all that the home education law requires. The superintendent must comply with verifying to PHEAA that the student has completed the home education law’s requirements. See 22 Pa Code § 121.21 (c).


See the section on Diplomas in this Home Education website.
