Each school year, ZOE hosts a homeschool graduation ceremony and reception. It is an elegant, well-planned ceremony similar to a traditional graduation, but gives each family the opportunity to speak and present their student with his/her diploma.
Zoe offers the annual graduation activities as a special way to honor students who have been involved and active in Zoe Teens. As a community outreach, we also open the graduation up to homeschool families in the community. We do encourage graduates and their family to join Zoe to realize all of the benefits, but it is not required.
To participate, the graduate must be a part of a registered homeschool for at least two years. The graduate and parents are required to attend monthly graduation planning meetings. Each family will have at least one job. Seniors make choices of class color, verse and songs for the photo montage. The cost is approximately $260 per graduate and is broken into monthly payments.
Graduates are also highly encouraged to attend a monthly senior social. It is recommended, but not required, that the family join ZOE so that they can get to know the other graduates and their families. A real sense of camaraderie develops between each graduating class and often, great new and lasting friendships are formed.
The number of spaces for graduates is limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Meetings and decisions will begin in November. No application for graduation will be taken after the January meeting.
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will suceced.
