37th Annual Virginia Homeschool Convention

Greater Richmond Convention Center  |  June 11-13, 2020

The Hardest, Most Important Work You’ll Ever Do

Teaching your children–helping them to be all they were created to be–is a messy, complex journey filled with joy, angst, guilt, love, and sometimes, even despair.

You wonder if you are ruining your kids. Will they ever learn to read, be kind, listen? What happened to those visions of cozy mornings reading together on the couch and exploring science in the backyard?

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

Because of this, we bring together authentic speakers with change-your-life messages and exhibitors with passion and knowledge to equip and encourage you with new ideas, strategies, vision, and perspective..

So come join us–and many other like-minded homeschool families. Let’s recharge, learn, grow and walk this beautiful, messy, incredibly important journey TOGETHER.

Non-Homeschooling Grandparents
