Homeschool Convention

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! 

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

You are not alone.

Held each year in June at the Greater Richmond Convention Center, HEAV’s Annual Virginia Homeschool Convention is one of the largest, most vibrant homeschool conventions in the nation. The three-day event brings together authentic speakers with change-your-life messages, and exhibitors with passion and knowledge to equip and encourage you with ideas, strategies, and vision.

Join us and thousands of like-minded homeschooling families this year.
