Keynote Speaker—Pat Farenga
Many homeschoolers have heard of John Holt, the father of the modern homeschooling movement. Though John died two decades ago, you have the unique opportunity to hear him through the voice of his appointed successor, Pat Farenga of Holt Associates, Boston MA. A long-time homeschooler with three children, Pat's national (and international) status allows him to offer us a very broad, yet intimate picture of the homeschooling movement, homeschooling's opportunities and pitfalls, and a glimpse into the future of homeschooling.


Seminars & Workshops
All SEMINARS are held in the main theater. WORKSHOPS are held in two smaller rooms. See room designations with titles.


Diverse Resource Fair
You will find a wide variety of vendors offering everything from computer software, Christian materials, unique learning supplies, videos, wonderful books, tools, math manipulates and materials, curricula, and many other resources.


Local Support Groups Fair
