A one-day event for the Greater Bay Area, featuring workshops, information about homeschool groups in the area, a curriculum share, and a chance to ask questions and fellowship with other homeschool parents.


Workshops will cover these topics: Am I qualified to homeschool? Why should I homeschool? Is homeschooling legal? Which curriculum should I choose? Where do I go for resources? Where do I find my community? What steps do I take to homeschool? What are some hints, tips and hacks for preschool & elementary children? How do I build a homeschool plan for my high school student? How do I prepare for college?


Find a community group that fits your family. Several will be there from the Bay Area.
