People do ask about things like this, and others, such as, "How will she get a diploma?" "Where does her diploma come from?" "Who gives you a transcript?" "Will colleges accept her diploma?" and such. Some of those questions are easy answers, such as...colleges don't want to see her diploma, they want a transcript. Who makes the transcript? The parent does. SO what about a diploma? Although we go the non-traditional route often (ummm, homeschooling, yeah...) and the pragmatist in me thinks, well, I never have done anything at all with my high school diploma other than leave it in a file for the past 30 years, there is something nice and formal about having a diploma, so we decided to have one made for her. About this time I was given the opportunity to review the Standard Diploma produced by Homeschool Diploma company and I am SO GLAD that we were introduced to this company!

|The diploma arrived in a priority envelope, with the actual diploma sealed|
in a zip-top plastic bag which can aid in keeping it nice in storage!
|And here it is!! It looks lovely!|
|The outside of the cover is very nice with her name on the lower right|

|We chose the "lamp" seal and the high honors seal. You can see on here the signature|
lines for administrator and instructor.
|There is also an informational card included which details the signing of the diploma.|
|We also went ahead and ordered the archive copy (extra copy), which arrives|
in a glassine envelope for safe keeping.
What do you think? All in all, it was a WONDERFUL experience! I highly recommend Homeschool Diploma company for diplomas for homeschoolers as well as for traditional or non-traditional schools! (yes, they have options for non-homeschoolers too!) It was SO easy to order, the product is high quality, and I am very pleased. The only thing I wished for was to be able to see a mock-up of the product before I placed the order, but other than that, it was a super ordering experience!
I had mentioned that they have other products as well...if your student is graduating with a ceremony, you might want to check out their caps and gowns and honors cords, etc! They even have products for kindergarten graduations (little caps and gowns!), products for 8th grade graduations (diplomas specially for junior highschoolers) and more!
