Due to the uncertainty regarding COVID-19, aka the coronavirus, Early Bird Ticket rates will be extended through April 8th to give folks time to allow concerns to be resolved before purchasing passes. The HSC Board is keeping abreast of events for health and safety and will update you as we get closer to the event.


So much more than just a conference - it’s a celebration, a party, a statewide gathering of homeschoolers and their families for learning, friendship, support, and fun! Featuring some of the best-known speakers in the homeschooling and parenting community, HSC’s annual conference is a place to explore, relax, learn and find time to meet with new friends. It’s a place where everything you need to know about homeschooling is under one roof for an entire weekend! To stay informed and involved, join the HSC Conference Facebook Group here.

Do you have young children? 

The conference has many ongoing activities and workshops for families with young children to enjoy.  Grandparents can attend for FREE! This way, you can attend adult sessions while another adult has fun with the kids.  You'll be especially interested in activities like the Craft Zone and the Little Kids' Playroom.  Of course, there is swimming and dancing and all kinds of family fun.

Are you looking for networking, support, and community? 

Join over a thousand children, teens, and adults as we learn, play, and dance together.  You will love being surrounded by close-knit happy families and will have plenty of opportunities to connect with others.


Are you a teen looking for peers who are interesting, creative, and a whole lot of fun?  

The conference teen program is planned by and for teens, themselves, and is legendary throughout the homeschooling community.  There are workshops, games, discussions, dances, and so much more.  Many teens come back year after year and look forward to it as one of the highlights of their year.
