About the WTHEA Graduation

West Tennessee
Home Education Association​Established in 1984​




W.T.H.E.A. hosts an annual Senior Graduation for home schoolers all across West Tennessee. The graduation is both traditional with a little bit of non-traditional mixed in which provides a more personal touch to the event as a whole.

Seniors wear the traditional cap and gown. Parent(s) present the senior with their high school diploma on stage while the senior presents their mother with a rose. We will have a significant Keynote Speaker who provides encouragement for our young adults as they proceed to their next stage in life. There are performances by talented seniors as well as awards and special recognition for the W.T.H.E.A. Valedictorian, Salutatorian and Outstanding Students. Following the ceremony there will be beautiful reception with cake, fruit, nuts, etc. Some of the students prepare displays of their accomplishments, favorite memories, and special moments.
