With the Homeschool Convention season soon approaching, and whether you have been walking the homeschooling journey for years or are just beginning, (or considering) homeschooling, there are many reasons to attend a Homeschool Convention.
Why should you attend Great Homeschool Conventions? Below are the different reasons that will encourage you to do so. We made it our mission to help homeschool teachers and mothers in educating our children in the best possible way.
Homeschooling Convention Benefits
- For encouragement and education
If you are just beginning or considering, homeschooling, make plans to hear Cathy Duffy as she leads the Homeschool 101 Track to answer all of your questions and put all doubt out of your mind. You can do this! And for those of you who have been on this journey longer and may need a little motivation? There are dozens of speakers – including veteran homeschooling parents who will give you a glimpse of the end and will leave you encouraged to persevere through those last years – or even the younger years – to finish well.
By attending Great Homeschool Conventions, you will have the opportunity to hear some of the top speakers on Education and Parenting issues over the weekend, including Dr. Ben Carson, Heidi St. John, Michael Medved, Dr. Jay Wile, Gianna Jessen, Dr. Kathy Koch, the popular Matt Walsh, and dozens of other fantastic speakers.
- Access to good homeschool curriculum

- Experience a great family fun
On Friday night at each Convention, a Family Comedy Night is held. Fun for the entire family, Mark Lowry and Bob Smiley are a guaranteed laugh!
- Exposure to children’s faith-based homeschool programs
Running simultaneously to the Convention, real faith for the real world Teen Track and a Children’s Conference are available. Great Homeschool Conventions is honored to have Alex McFarland, Dr. Jay Wile, Scott Klusendorf, Lila Rose, and Bill Perry involved and leading the Teen Track. And once again, Children’s Conference International will offer a high-energy, faith-based Children’s Conference for children ages 5 through 12. These programs are guaranteed fun for all children!
Would you be attending alone for a mom’s retreat? An Individual Registration is very minimal. And a Family Registration, which includes parents or guardians, children, and grandparents (and even great-grandparents!), is quite affordable, too.
Making a Homeschooling Convention a Learning Experience
Homeschool Convention Field TripHomeschool conventions can be a source of inspiration and encouragement for parents. Attending the many workshops and hearing the speakers will motivate you. It will refresh you to continue your homeschooling journey with a new mindset.
It can also be an educational experience for children. If you are bringing your homeschooling children with you, plan for them. You may be willing to spend every minute of your day listening to experts, looking over curricula and attending workshops, but what about the children? How can this be a fun, learning experience for them? What other ideas do you have to make a homeschool convention a learning experience for your children?
