‘Can I REALLY do this?’ Workshop

This popular homeschooling workshop is the ideal place to start. This workshop will answer questions from anyone considering homeschooling, and from anyone ready to start their homeschool journey. Questions like, “Is homeschooling legal?”, “Am I qualified?”, “Where do I start?”, and “How do I start?”

Join us Friday, February 24, 2023 for this workshop. This workshop is free, but to attend any other parts of the convention, you will need to register.

Homeschool Completion Ceremony

We are pleased to once again host the Homeschool Completion Recognition Ceremony. The ceremony will take place on Saturday afternoon prior to the final plenary session, in honour of students completing formal homeschool studies in the spring of 2023. Both parents and grads will be introduced.

For more information or to participate in this event, please contact Stephanie by Feb. 7th, 2023.

Used Books

One of the benefits of membership is the privilege of being able to sell or purchase used curriculum at the convention. Please indicate in your registration form if you want to sell used books, and an inventory code and form will be emailed to you.

For further information or any questions, please contact Francie Munchinsky.
