If you are a homeschooling parent within driving distance to Atlanta, Georgia then you may find yourself interested in attending the Atlanta show for the Southeast Homeschool Expo. This expo is designed to encourage parents in the raising and educating of their children in a homeschool environment.
The expo features a one-day conference called Homeschooling for Excellence 101. This is where homeschooling parents can get the answers they are in need of. This is where they can learn how to better their situation as a homeschooling parent and learn how to help their children. They can get the advice they need from other homeschooling parents, many of which have been at it a while.
Another great thing about the homeschooling convention is there are also a variety of workshops offered to the kids. This will keep the kids busy while the parents attend the convention. The kids will also have the ability to listen to several different speakers who have the mindset of influencing the homeschooled kids to become more active, enthusiastic learners.
The home school show also offers students and parents of students who are nearing the end of their high school grade levels with the opportunity to interact with homeschool friendly colleges and universities. This is when courses offered, admission, financial aid requirements, and other pertinent information will be provided.
This expo really won’t break the bank as it is quite affordable. Individual registration will only run you $20 if you purchase online ahead of time. Otherwise, it’s $30 at the door. Couples can save money by registering together for a total price of $25 purchased ahead of time or $35 at the door. The workshops available for the kids also are not very expensive either. You can pay $35 for just one day or $80 for all three days. However, lunch is not included.
The 2011 Southeast Homeschool Expo will be taking place in Marietta (Atlanta), Georgia from July 29th through the 30th. Registration ends on July 17th at midnight. After that, you can pay the price at the door. Please keep in mind that there are two other homeschooling conventions; The Alabama Homeschool Expo and The Chicago Homeschool Expo. So, if you’re closer to either of those conventions, be sure to take advantage of all they have to offer. Regardless of which expo you attend, the experience will be extremely beneficial to both homeschooled children as well as homeschooling parents.
