Free Online Homeschool Convention


There is a free online homeschool convention/seminar called the “Not Back to School Summit” put on by the Home Educators Council of America.

They have free online classes/workshops going through the month of September from veteran homeschoolers and well known homeschool speakers such as Israel Wayne, Andrew Pudewa from the Institute for Excellence in Writing, Ray and Charlene Notgrass, and so much more.

There are seminars for beginning homeschoolers, homeschooling for dads, fueling passion, encouragement, science, history of education in America, etc.

When you go to the website you need to set up a login account, which is free, and you can either watch the live feed (which are scheduled at various times throughout the day) or go to the replay button and watch them at night after the kids go to bed.

*Their website currently appears to not be in service for the time being.  Check back often for updates if available.
