HOME Graduation

Annual Graduation Ceremony


Saturday, March 21, 2020 at 1:00pm

Samoset Resort, Rockport 


Do you have a young adult who will be finishing their high school education in 2020? If so, HOME would like to invite you to participate in a very special graduation ceremony. Join us to mark this momentous occasion in the life of your child! 


HOME's graduation ceremony provides a great sense of accomplishment for each participating family, and is also an encouragement for other homeschoolers to continue on through high school! 


In addition, the ceremony provides a wonderful way to include family and friends in a special celebration. Parents take part in the event, too, and will present the diploma to their child. 


Graduation occurs on the final day of HOME's Annual Convention. For a complete family getaway with your graduate, consider attending HOME Convention events, as well!



  • Graduates and parents may present short speeches (2-3 minutes) about their homeschooling experience and future plans, if desired, following their diploma presentation. 
  • A video slide show of the graduates as they have grown up is presented as part of the ceremony. If you wish to participate in this way, please plan to send 8 - 10 pictures of your graduate by email or CD to Tiffany Wilcoxson,  tiffany@lifesourcemaine.org.
  • A reception with light refreshments will follow the ceremony.  
  • Graduation apparel and diplomas can be ordered through the HSLDA Store.
  • To make the most of your special occasion, plan for overnight accommodations at the Samoset Resort and enjoy the resort's beautiful location and many amenities

The Crazy Verse: It is More Blessed to Give Than Receive 

As Paul was saying goodbye to the elders at Ephesus, he quoted Jesus and said "It is more blessed to give than receive."  Is it idealistic, impossible, over-the-top, unrealistic to say that giving is better than getting? Our ordinary daily lives down here on planet earth seem to teach us that in fact, getting is better than giving. Not so fast!  Maybe it is literally, really true. And maybe it matters right now.



  • Please pre-register using either the online or mail-in form below, no later than February 29, 2020. Please include payment of $50 per family (graduate and up to five guests), and $7.50 for each additional guest (ages 3+). You may make your payment using the Donate button in the margin to the right.
