Graduates Not Attending In-Person:
Ensign Peak Academy and Homeschool Graduates may attend online instead of traveling to Utah. They may order the cap and gown and wear it on their graduation day. They will appear on camera. Their diploma and/or transcript will be announced by the Director, and presented by their parents. (Diplomas will be mailed out ahead of time.)
Homeschool graduates may participate in the commencement services. This is an opportunity given to currently enrolled students of Ensign Peak Academy who have not completed all graduation requirements, but have completed and passed the courses in which they were enrolled, with at least a C- grade, earning a minimum of 3 credits. These seniors will be honored by their parents.
Parents of homeschool graduates will prepare their own independent non-accredited homeschool diploma and will personally present it to the student, during the commencement services. Ensign Peak Academy will present the student’s transcript, showing any credit earned through Ensign Peak Academy.
In addition, if the student has earned a certificate or transcript from any other institution, these may be presented by the parents to the student at that time as well.
The parents and student will not represent publicly or in any manner that the student is a graduate of Ensign Peak Academy, but is a graduate of the family’s homeschool program, with some credit earned through Ensign Peak Academy.
