2018 HEAV Convention

posted Aug 5, 2018, 9:11 AM by DanandBecky Kee   [ updated Aug 5, 2018, 9:25 AM ]
Registration is now open for the 35th Annual Virginia Homeschool Convention in Richmond on June 7, 8, & 9.   If you've never been, the convention is a smorgasbord of all things homeschooling.  From influential speakers to classes for parents and students, from a graduation ceremony for seniors to a weekend long children's program for the littles, to music competitions, dissection labs, a chess championship and more.  And don't even get me started on the curriculum fair.  It's enough to leave your head spinning for the rest of the summer.  

Registration Information - Early registration fees are lower, and HEAV members get a $10 discount.  Register online at  New this year, Grandparents can register separately and attend free, no HEAV membership required.  Also, parents of preschoolers can attend free!  If your oldest is 4 or under (as of June 9, 2018) and this is your first HEAV convention, your registration is FREE!

Last Year's Audio - If you missed last year's convention, you can buy the MP3 or CD set here:  It's an amazing resource to have at home and be able to soak in all those talks in snippets throughout the year.
