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!

Hotels

Hotel Scam Alert

Each year, a third-party company claims to be booking rooms on behalf of Great Homeschool Conventions. This is a scam; their rates are $45–70 higher than what GHC has negotiated with area hotels.

We have nothing to do with this company and they do not represent us in any way.

Please book your accommodations through one of the options below to take advantage of our negotiated rates.

Drawing homeschool attendees from Florida, Georgia and Alabama, the GHC regional homeschooling convention in Jacksonville, Florida is held at the Prime F Osborne III convention center. You’ll find home schooling moms and families attending the Jacksonville Homeschool Convention from Orlando, Florida… Miami, Florida… Tampa Florida, and even Mobile, Alabama.

There is also a very special discounted hotel room rate for GHC homeschool convention attendees that stay at the Hyatt in Jacksonville – AND – this also includes FREE parking at the Hyatt, and – for those staying at the Hyatt – a coupon for FREE parking at the Prime F Osborne III convention center.

The GHC Jacksonville, Florida homeschool convention is carefully designed to equip and encourage… with much to offer regardless of whether you are a veteran homeschooler or brand new to homeschooling.

The Featured Speaker roster includes dozens of really fantastic speakers. This includes speakers such as Dr. Christopher Perrin, Dr. Kathy Koch, Sarah Mackenzie, Andrew Pudewa, Pam Barnhill, Andrew Peterson, Colleen Kessler, Dr. Jay Wile and dozens more.

Jacksonville, Florida homeschool convention attendees are able to choose from 100s of information-packed homeschooling workshop sessions that cover an incredibly broad range of relevant topics. This includes Classical homeschooling, Charlotte Mason home school methods, understanding learning styles and/or giftedness, parenting & homeschooling, reading, writing, math, science, language arts, college prep… and so much more — including a “Real Faith for the Real World” Teen Track.

When looking for new homeschooling resources or homeschool curriculum, there’s nothing better than browsing and shopping in the huge GHC homeschool convention Exhibit Hall. Not only will you find new ideas and great “convention deals” – you will be able to examine homeschool resources in-person, and ask questions of other homeschoolers who have used the very curriculum you are considering… and sometimes ask questions of the very person(s) who wrote & designed it.

Many will attend as a family, and attend for one, two… or all three days. In other instances, you will find that two or more homeschooling Moms will carpool and then share a hotel room.

The Jacksonville, Florida Homeschool Convention is equipping… encouraging… and FUN!
