FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.,
May 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- High
school commencement ceremonies are one of the most revered rites of
passage for American teens, signaling their transition into young
adulthood. Time4Learning, an award-winning online homeschooling
platform, will honor homeschooled seniors by hosting its first-ever
virtual graduation celebration on Thursday,
June 3 at 7 p.m. (EDT).
The event will feature a commencement address from Time4Learning
Founder and President John Edelson
and graduate photos with personal statements by the graduates.
According to a summary of a 2009 study prepared by
Michael Cogan of the University of St. Thomas, homeschooled seniors
attend college and graduate at a higher rate than their traditional
school counterparts. Perhaps due to homeschooling's flexibility,
which allows students to enroll in college courses while completing
high school requirements.
"Homeschooled students deserve a celebration befitting their
accomplishment, but many states do not offer the chance for them to
celebrate in the same way as their traditional school
counterparts," said Edelson. "We are excited to help them
commemorate this important milestone."
Graduates must live in the United
States and have satisfied the graduation requirements within
their state of residence to participate in this celebration.
Registration to participate must be received by Sunday, May 30, 2021 at midnight (EDT).
Participating students will receive a Graduation Kit filled with
fun favors to help them celebrate at home. To register, please
The ceremony will be streamed live on YouTube. Family and
friends are invited to tune into the premiere and use the
platform's comment features to celebrate the graduates.
