Participating graduates must be homeschooled in accordance with ARS §15-802. Public school, private school, and virtual charter school students are ineligible.

Registration Information

Please read the registration letter for details, cost, dress code, and instructions for participation before completing the online registration form.


Special Music or Poetry

To make the graduation personal to those participating, we like to highlight some of the graduates during the ceremony. The committee is looking for musical, poetic, or other works that reflect the themes of family, gratitude, hope for future work, and honor. Because this is a formal event, reverent and classical selections are preferred. If you have a musical selection (instrumental or vocal) or a poem, please submit a labeled audio or video recording of your presentation along with the submission form (below).


Special Music/Poetry Submission Deadline: May 15, 2014

Note: This is earlier than the regular registration deadline.

Register Online

Registration for participation in the 2014 Junior High Graduate Recognition Ceremony will be done entirely online. Registration and membership fees are non-refundable.
