High school diploma templates are available online from several stores and organizations including the Home School Legal Defense Association and Donna Young. The diploma templates come in a variety of sizes, styles, colors and formats.
These diploma templates are available for free download in PDF or Microsoft Word format to be completed and printed by the user. They are also available for purchase, with a range of high quality paper types and customizable typefaces and designs from which to choose. Users may enter the name of the school, date of graduation, honors received and other text. These diploma templates are intended primarily for use in home school graduation ceremonies and are not valid unless accompanied by other evidence of completion of a legally accredited home schooling curriculum. Otherwise, the diplomas should be considered for entertainment purposes only and may not be used as substitutes for a genuine diploma from a public or private secondary school or for a GED. Use of these diploma templates to misrepresent or fabricate an academic or professional record is both illegal and ill-advised, since prospective employers and others may search public databases to obtain legal documentation to confirm an individual's enrollment in and/or completion of a high-school curriculum.
