Seton Graduation 2023June 17, 2023
Seton will hold a graduation ceremony on June 17, 2023, at Warren County High School in Front Royal, Virginia.
In order to be eligible to participate in the graduation ceremony, 2023 graduating students must:
- be a 12th grade Seton Home Study School student
- be taking sufficient courses in 12th grade to meet graduation requirements
- have earned at least 15 high school credits (any combination of Seton credits, transfer credits, and independent study)
- have completed, or expect to complete, high school work in the 2023 calendar year; or have completed their high school work on or after July 1, 2022
- be current on any tuition or fees owed to Seton
- register and pay the graduation fee by May 15th, 2023
2023 graduates ARE NOT REQUIRED to have completed all courses by the graduation date. Students who have not completed sufficient credits to graduate will receive a participation certificate at the ceremony. A signed diploma will be mailed to the student when studies are completed. In order to register for the graduation, a student must have at least 15 high school credits, from any combination of Seton course credits, transfer credits, and independent study credits. Registrations will not be accepted from students who have fewer than 15 credits. Since the registration deadline is May 15th, students who are a credit or two short of 15 credits should have time to finish up some courses and therefore qualify in time.
In addition to 2023 graduates, students who completed their diploma requirements on or after July 1, 2022 are eligible to attend.

Costs and Attendance
The base graduation fee is $160, which includes the graduate plus four guests. To keep the base fee low, and to try to be as fair to everyone as possible, we have instituted a $20 per-guest fee for more than four guests. Children under 6 years of age are free.
We must restrict the maximum attendees per graduate to the graduate plus 10 guests. The only exception to this maximum will be immediate family members (graduate’s parents and brothers and sisters). Extra guests may be allowed if space permits.
Families who register for the graduation will be contacted with further information.
If you register and then find you cannot attend for any reason, a full refund of any fees paid will be available until the day of graduation.
** Important notice for families living outside the United States **
As of May 12th, the United States has rescinded a vaccination requirement for visitors from other countries. However, we suggest that non-US families check current US travel policies (as well as travel policies of their home country) before registering: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/proof-of-vaccination.html
The Value of Your Enrollment
Your enrollment provides you with much more than just a box of books. It provides an accredited education, a strong support system, and a community of staff and homeschoolers who are in your corner. It provides access to academic and support counseling, grading and record keeping, and a solid Catholic curriculum that promotes strong Catholic values in each and every subject.
