Teaching in a Christian school I found it very hard to find diplomas for my kindergarten graduation ceremony that were both religious and educational in nature; therefore, I decided to create digital diplomas on my own that had both school related clip art as well as Christian clip art. I knew that putting the time in now to create them would benefit me for years down the road because for years to come all I will have to do is edit and print them. No more having to worry about finding enough packs and seeing if they were in stock and available during the hectic end of the school year. I decided to create 3 different designs so I could alternate from year to year and from class to class.
I also wanted invitations that would be sure to catch parents’ attention and not get thrown away which is why I included a personalized version. Every year I put up a “Grinning Graduates” bulletin board with student-drawn portraits with graduation hats and the parents always LOVE it and get very sentimental seeing their children with graduation hats on their heads. This sparked the idea of allowing the students to draw themselves as graduates directly on the invitations so not only would they catch parents’ attention but they would want to keep it as a nice personalized keepsake in addition to the diploma. I also created a general version to be emailed and/or sent home as well.
Once others saw what I created I was asked if I could make some for the older grades as well. I ended up creating 3 different versions (preschool, kindergarten, and grades 1-6). Even though all the wording is editable, I changed the educational clip art on each set to better reflect the grade level.
All of these Christian diplomas and graduation invitations are available for others to use and enjoy here (I also have secular sets available).
Each pack includes both editable diplomas and editable certificates (certificates of completion for students who are “moving up” not graduating or for schools that are not having a graduation ceremony). All wording can be edited to fit your needs (images are NOT editable).
Each set also includes graduation invitations. All wording on the invitations is editable. You receive both general and personalized invitations as well as invitations for graduation and also end of the school year celebrations.
Personalized invitations & end of the school year celebration invitations that allow students to draw themselves as graduates or as how they look at the end of the school year – a cute keepsake for parents.
General graduation invitations and end of the school year celebration invitations that can be emailed or handed out/sent home.
Each set also includes white background versions of each diploma, certificate, and invitation that can be printed on colored paper to save ink.
*Please note that only the name, school, teacher, and invitation details are editable. The design and images of the diplomas, certificates, and invitations can not be changed or altered.
