Convention FAQs

We have compiled a list of the most commonly asked questions and provided answers on our Convention FAQ page. Please review the CONVENTION FAQ before registering for the convention.

Children / Teens

We love children and you are welcome to bring your child/children with you, however this conference is geared for parent / teacher enrichment and learning and space is limited in workshop rooms, so we encourage you to make childcare arrangements.

Teens and children (age 3 and up) will be charged an admission fee of $10 each. Infants (age 2 and under) are admitted free. A curtained mothers' area will be available in the exhibit hall for nursing and feeding. Children under age 12 must remain with an adult at all times.


This year's two-dayTeen Program is iAdvocate, presented by Generation Joshua.


Unmarried homeschooled graduates that are attending college or still living at home may register for the convention at the $10 child/teen rate if they register with their parents. Married graduates or those living on their own must register separately and pay the adult admission fee.

Non-Homeschooling Grandparents

We value the importance of grandparents in the homeschooling process and welcome grandparents at the convention! Non-homeschooling grandparents are always free if they attend with their adult child who is registered for the convention. Grandparents who are still homeschooling one or more of their own children must register separately and pay the admission fee.
