Discover Freedom in Homeschooling!

II Corinthians 3:17

It happens to all of us. Whether we’ve been homeschooling for 20 minutes or 20 years, we hit a wall. Homeschooling looked so easy in the books and blogs—and everyone else seems to have it all together. Uncertainty creeps in. Doubt. Even fear. But the good news is…

Freedom is bigger than your fear.

Whether you’re just thinking about taking the plunge or have years of experience, you have tremendous freedom in educating your children at home.

Most of all, as a parent, you have the freedom to find answers. You don’t have to know it all at once. You have freedom to find out…how to set your own schedule, what “real-life” learning looks like for you, and how to help them find their passion.

The Annual Virginia Homeschool Convention is one of the largest, most vibrant homeschool conventions in the nation. It brings together top speakers with change-your-life messages and exhibitors with passion and knowledge to equip and empower you with ideas, strategies, and vision.

Join us and thousands of other homeschooling families at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. Come, discover freedom with us, and let your hope be bigger than your fear!

  • Freedom to choose the curricula or methods that work for our child
  • Freedom to include real-life learning
  • Freedom to put our family first
  • Freedom to address special needs
  • Freedom to let them learn at their own pace
  • Freedom to follow our child’s—or our—passions
  • Freedom to set our own schedules and routines
  • Freedom in the homeschool law

 

Teaching our children and helping them be all they can be—is a complex, amazing journey filled with joy and love–it is not meant to be a lonely path. Come, gather with Virginia homeschool families and find STRENGTH in community.  

Do you wonder if you are doing the right thing? Do you doubt your own abilities? Or perhaps you’re still deciding whether you want to homeschool.

You are not alone. We’ve been there ourselves.

The Annual Virginia Homeschool Convention—one of largest, most vibrant homeschool conventions in the nation–brings together authentic speakers with change-your-life messages, exhibitors with passion and knowledge to equip and encourage you with ideas, strategies, and vision.

Join us and thousands of like-minded homeschooling families at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. Let’s gather to learn, grow, and connect, and find strength in community as we journey together.
