Have you ever considered homeschooling for your family? Have you wanted more information but didn’t know who to ask? Maybe you are already homeschooling and are looking for that extra boost. Or maybe you’ve been homeschooling a long time and need some new curriculum ideas? Whatever your status, you will want to attend the 29th Annual Home Educators Association of Virginia Convention & Educational Fair, running through Saturday at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. This year’s theme is, “Home Education: For their future.”
The convention has an extensive exhibit hall (more than 340 booths), a used curriculum sale (60,000-plus items last year), a two-day workshop on filmmaking, a high school graduation, and workshops on parenting, learning styles, family life, homeschooling, and a whole lot more. Speakers include Dr. Ted Tripp (Shepherding a Child’s Heart), Astrophysicist Jason Lisle (The Ultimate Proof of Creation), Hal and Melanie Young (Raising Real Men), and many others.
Making it all even better is that there is no admission for qualifying parents of preschoolers for the entire convention: You must be a parent of a preschooler, homeschooling is a possible option for your family, your eldest child is under five years of age, and you are a first-time convention attendee. Families who currently homeschool can attend for one low price and children of any age may attend the many workshops with their parents.
The Family Foundation is proud to be among the many exhibitors at this year’s HEAV convention. We encourage anyone with an interest in education choice and homeschooling to attend. While there, please visit us in the exhibit hall, at Booth 706, along with other quality organizations and vendors, to learn more about our organization and the many others that promote options in education.
