Opened My Eyes

There is nothing quite like attending a (GHC) Great Homeschool Convention. So many awesome workshops to choose from; the speakers are simply the best; and shopping in the Exhibit Hall is an adventure where I always find new ideas and great convention deals. There’s fresh new info and material every year. You can’t go just one year! Don’t Miss It! You’ll be more equipped, encouraged and energized – both as a parent and as a Homeschooler.

Equipping. Encouraging. Affordable. FUN!

You haven't been to a great homeschool convention until you have been to a Great Homeschool Convention!

Each year, the Ontario, California Convention Center is host to GHC’s California Homeschooling Convention. With homeschooling moms and/or homeschool families attending not only from California, but also from Nevada, Oregon, Arizona, Utah, Idaho and Washington.

Why would homeschool families attend from so far away… or, why would homeschooling Moms decide to travel together, share a hotel room and attend a home school convention in Ontario, California?

In summary, a GHC Homeschooling Convention is equipping… encouraging… and FUN!

There are dozens of Featured Speakers – leading homeschool speakers – that provide practical and proven content, and that are passionate about teaching and helping homechooling moms and dads. These speakers lead 100s of information-packed workshop sessions over the three (3) days of convention – and then, these same speakers are available for individual conversation and discussion in the Exhibit Hall — which is absolutely huge, and which is an incredible place to browse and shop for new homeschooling resources… to compare homeschool curriculum… and to find steeply discounted homeschool convention specials.

The regional Ontario, California Homeschooling Convention “Featured Speaker” roster includes Dr. Kathy Koch, Dr. Christopher Perrin, Sarah Mackenzie, Andrew Peterson, Pam Barnhill, Andrew Pudewa, Dr. Jay Wile, Colleen Kessler and literally dozens more homeschool speakers that are truly outstanding.

Hotel Discounts and FREE Parking! There are a couple of very nice hotels next to the Ontario Convention Center that provide significant discounts for GHC homeschool convention attendees… and that also offer FREE parking for those attendees that stay at their hotel.

Finally, GHC Homeschool Convention Registration is crazy affordable! You simply won’t believe how affordably you get access to all of the speakers, workshops and the homeschooling curriculum Exhibit Hall.

It doesn’t matter whether you are brand-new to homeschooling or are a veteran homeschooler… the Ontario, California Homeschool Convention has so much to offer you. In fact, it will likely be one of the most beneficial things you can do for you and for your children as you are homeschooling them.

Be sure to register early… as pricing increases the closer we get to GHC’s California homeschooling convention!

We sure do hope to see you there!
