The accompanying table lists the diploma-granting organizations that currently are authorized by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) to grant state-recognized home education diplomas for PA residents only. They may not grant a home education diploma to anyone who is not a resident of PA. Additionally, they may grant diplomas only to those students who have submitted a home education affidavit and evaluation to their superintendent of schools for their graduation year.
These organizations reapply every three years and new organizations are added, so this list may change from year-to-year.
Here is listing of
previous diploma-granting institutions. If the student graduated within the dates of operation, they still would have a valid diploma.

An organization serving homeschooling families may apply to PDE for recognition to grant home education diplomas by completing the
