Homeschooling Conventions

It’s a new year, which means it’s time to get ready for the homeschooling conventions! If you have never attended one, you are in for a treat. These conventions are designed to provide you not only with instruction and resources, but also with encouragement and a fresh resolve to continue on your homeschooling journey.

What can you expect at a homeschooling convention? Most conventions have a line-up of speakers to address various aspects of homeschooling, from raising children to curriculum to teaching methods.  Many offer activities and classes for children and teens as well. Be sure to take some your school funds with you, as vendors will be offering a variety of books and other educational materials.

There are a number of homeschooling conventions already scheduled this year, and they are usually very affordable since they are priced with families in mind. To see if there’s a convention coming to your area, check out this list below:
