Opened My Eyes

The convention opened my eyes to so many possibilities in homeschooling I had never even considered!

— Mrs. Kim Rodgers —

Equipping. Encouraging. Affordable. FUN!

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

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.
