Our regional homeschooling conventions are Equipping, Encouraging and Fun! Whether you are brand new to homeschooling, or a veteran homeschooler, you will quickly see why our conventions attract thousands of attendees from all over the United States and Canada each year.
The Best HOMESCHOOLING RESOURCES and CURRICULUM
Our attendees love to shop in our Exhibit Hall, knowing that they will find new ideas and great convention-only deals on the very best homeschooling resources and curriculum. This is an incredible time-saver that helps you make smart decisions for your family – as there’s nothing quite like being able to examine a new homeschooling curriculum or homeschool resource in-person, and gathering information from others that have already used the very resource or curriculum that you are considering.
And, for those that only want to SHOP for homeschooling resources and curriculum, you may choose our “SHOPPING-ONLY” convention registration.
Incredible HOMESCHOOLING WORKSHOPS, INFORMATION and ENCOURAGEMENT
Why reinvent the wheel, or learn by “trial and error” with your children, when you can learn from caring homeschooling experts and parents that have already been down the road that you are now on?
A “FULL” convention registration not only includes Shopping in the Exhibit Hall, but also includes being able to attend information-packed homeschooling workshops. Each of our regional conventions features dozens of outstanding speakers, and as many as 250 workshop-sessions from which to choose over the 3-days of convention. These workshop sessions are carefully designed to be informative, equipping and encouraging, and cover today’s top homeschooling and parenting topics – allowing you to attend only those sessions that are specifically and uniquely relevant for you and your family. (For example: Homeschooling 101, Reading, Parenting, Special Needs Homeschooling, Gifted, Music, Foreign Languages, Science, Math, Preschool, High School, Classical Homeschooling, Charlotte Mason Homeschooling, Learning styles, College Prep and more!)
These workshop sessions will equip and encourage you with practical, proven Homeschooling & Parenting methods, information and concepts.
Each of our regional conventions also features optional Special Events that keep things fun and entertaining. Please consult each Regional Homeschooling Convention page for events that are specific to that location, but these events include the Real Mom Tour with Sarah Mackenzie, Pam Barnhill and Colleen Kessler; Comedian Bob Smiley; SLUGS & BUGS – Live; GIANT COW Children’s Conference; and Dr. Carol Swain.
