I am wondering about diplomas. Are they necessary? Any tips for creating one? Perhaps you cover them i your book but i haven't gotten there yet.

Students who graduate from an unaccredited school district still receive diplomas. As far as state education officials are concerned, the diploma of a student who graduates from an unaccredited school district is valid.
We also gave our first a high school diploma. It is odd that that little piece of paper seemed to make family feel so much better, our accomplishments were somehow legitimized in their eyes. But more importantly, as we used homeschooldiploma.com, deciding exactly what my daughter wanted on HER diploma was a wonderfully satisfying but bittersweet way to end her at home studies and begin her university adventures. We were so very pleased with homeschooldiploma.com that we will be using their resources for my son's diploma as well. And feeling even more bittersweet that our last will soon be off on his university adventures too.
