workshops at the Virginia homeschool convention
Are you just beginning to explore homeschooling? Don’t want to commit to the entire convention? Take advantage of our FREE “How-to-Begin-Homeschooling” introductory workshops. These workshops, offered on Thursday afternoon, will introduce prospective or beginning homeschoolers to the wonderful world of home education. All three workshops are open to the public. Simply sign in upon arrival at the main Registration Lobby.

Afterward, your name badge will allow you three hours of shopping in the Exhibit Hall–a veritable homeschool marketplace, chock full of curricula, resources, games, puzzles, CDs, DVDs, and more–not to mention hands-on activities and demonstrations. You may experience it all as our guest!
