The theme of the 2023 HSC Conference will be "HSC Family Reunion". We envisage a return to the community-driven, radical roots of the homeschooling movement, while also throwing out a wide and inclusive net that reflects the true diversity of California homeschoolers today. At the 2023 conference you will hear from thought-leaders across the homeschooling world, who align with the secular and inclusive values of HSC.
We know that sometimes it can be difficult to choose between chatting with friends in the hotel lobby and attending a talk from your favorite speaker, so there will be designated "Community Time" in the schedule where attendees can choose to socialize, take part in community activities, rest, or enjoy a dip in the hotel pool!
Join us again this year for FOUR engaging days of community, activities, inspiring speakers, teen events, fun entertainment, a ton of educational resources, an exhibit hall, and, of course, an awesome talent show! There will be meet-ups to find support of all types, as we are a dynamic community of inclusive, welcoming, diverse homeschoolers. Come for the learning, stay for the community!
