General Information

Join home educated graduates from around the state as they celebrate the culmination of twelve years of diligent training and then commence into the world "to make a difference." Let us help send you out to be God-honoring young men and women, designed to achieve the specific purposes that God created just for you.

The MÂCHÉ-sponsored graduation, which relies on parents’ and students' involvement, includes a formal ceremony with caps and gowns, graduate speeches, and musical presentations performed by the graduates.

MÂCHÉ facilitates the graduation by securing a location, procuring caps and gowns, making arrangements for reception activities, ‘off-setting’ part of the expenses, scheduling monthly planning meetings, and guiding graduates and their parents in planning the ceremony. Families share in the cost of the graduation and commit to attending the monthly planning meetings.

The John and Lynne Cooke Scholarship

The John and Lynne Cooke Scholarship is awarded annually to two home educated students - one young man and one young woman - who are participants in the MÂCHÉ graduation ceremony. The scholarships are awarded to those who demonstrate “the spirit of selfless service and ministry to the community and the body of Christ as exemplified by John and Lynne Cooke.

The two scholarships can be used for purposes such as post-secondary schooling, missionary work, apprenticeship opportunities, or getting started in a career.

The scholarships are not awarded for good grades or popularity, although these attributes may be positive “byproducts.” Rather, they are awarded for a proven genuine love for God, good character, a ministry mindset, and a life of selfless service. Participation is optional and recipients will be chosen anonymously by John and Lynne Cooke.

Participate in the Graduation Ceremony

The opportunity to participate in the 2018 ceremony has passed. Watch for inform-ation for the 2019 ceremony which will be posted this fall. At that time, we will be happy to send you a Graduation Information Packet. The packet will explain in more detail everything involved in sharing in this exciting event, such as planning meetings, schedules, fees, caps and gowns, volunteer projects, class motto, student choir, video recording, and more.

If you would like more information, please contact the Graduation Coordinator at 763-717-9070 (1-866-717-9070) or info@mache.org. Be sure to include the following information: student’s name, parents’ names, mailing address, telephone, and working email address.

Because of the amount of time required for preparation for the annual ceremony, please contact us early. Share this information with other potential graduates.
