We had a great first-year homeschool convention in 2015. Texans from all over the state including Fort Worth, Dallas, Austin, Houston, Arlington, and San Antonio attended our first Texas event. We even had homeschooling families from the surrounding states of Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Arizona that showed up to check out the event! We had such a great time that we’re going to do it again in 2016: March 17th through March 19th, 2016, at the Fort Worth Convention Center.
We are so excited to have Ann Voskamp as a special guest. Chrystal Evans Hurst (daughter of Tony Evans), John Stonestreet, Michael Gurian, and 40+ other featured speakers will be leading core sessions covering a huge variety of session topics: topics that will inspire you to continue, teach you how to overcome difficult times in homeschooling, and encourage your efforts to do the best for your children.
We are still getting proposals from a wide variety of educators, Ph.D.s, veteran homeschooling moms, and more! A full schedule will be posted approximately one month prior to each event (a preliminary schedule is available now). The topics are as broad as the Texas sky! Homeschooling 101, special needs, the how-tos of teaching math, science, English, literature, reading…all core subjects are covered. Inspirational sessions, how to homeschool through hard times, common core awareness, and different styles of homeschooling (Charlotte Mason, Classical, hands-on, etc.) are also covered.

For teenagers, the Real Faith for the Real World Teen Track is sure to be challenging and encouraging. A Special Needs track will be helpful to those with special needs or gifted children, a Parenting track by Kirk and Casey Martin will be beneficial to all those with kids, and the Homeschool 101 trackis a great place to start if you’re considering or just getting started homeschooling!
Over 220 speaking sessions will be presented over the three days of the convention. For those who attend the convention, recordings of all sessions will be available for purchase.
You can shop ’til you drop in our huge exhibit hall! What better way to make those tough curriculum decisions than to have a hands-on look, talk to the curriculum authors, and be able to compare them side-by-side? Your homeschool favorites will be exhibiting at the Texas Homeschool Convention. Over two hundred exhibitors including many curriculum vendors will be presenting their material in our exhibit hall. If you are new to homeschooling, the exhibit hall will be an overwhelming realization of all the available options you have. Many of the curriculum writers will be available to answer your questions in person.
