The Most Important Work You'll Ever Do

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.
