“Finding Greystone has been such a blessing in our homeschool journey. The environment that the teachers create for the children is simply amazing. Our daughter always looks forward to going to class and has been thriving at Greystone. Mr. Capone has done a wonderful job at teaching to the different levels in the classroom, making sure everyone is understanding the material, and being challenged as well. He makes learning fun, instills confidence and creates an atmosphere where each student is nurtured, supported and encouraged in their thinking.” ~ Andria Angelico, Greystone parent

Diplomas

Greystone Academy does not provide diplomas to its students. As homeschooling families, it rests with the parents or guardians to provide the final academy record for their child(ren) and pursue the granting of a diploma. Families from Pennsylvania can work with one of the many diploma-granting organizations recognized by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to provide diplomas to graduates of Pennsylvania home education programs.

If you are homeschooled in Pennsylvania, you live in one of the only states in the country where you can graduate as a homeschooler and receive a recognized diploma.

All students at Greystone Academy, LLC are under the homeschool umbrella, should be registered with their school district as such, and may select an advisor to oversee their work at the end of each year if they so choose or are required. Greystone Academy will provide documentation for Greystone classes to submit to advisors.
