You'll sink your roots deep into  inspiring sources of encouragement and motivation for your homeschool adventures at the 2019 Homeschool Iowa Conference!

Our conference is the largest gathering of homeschoolers in our state each year, providing an unequaled opportunity to join together with thousands of other parents journeying through the homeschool adventure.

Inspiring speakers casting vision, seasoned presenters offering practical how-to advice, diverse exhibitors displaying quality resources, exciting programs delivering educational opportunities for youth and adults –our attendees found all this, and more, at the Homeschool Iowa Conference.

and I am walking away feeling

Refreshed indeed. Transformed."

CONFERENCE DETAILS




Disclaimers: While Homeschool Iowa is a Christian organization and whereas this belief guides the structure of the annual Homeschool Iowa Conference, Homeschool Iowa does not require attendees, speakers, or exhibitors to profess (declare, assert) agreement to the Homeschool Iowa statement of faith. In the same way, while we may not admit (accept, approve) an exhibitor or hire a speaker who is specifically “anti-Christian”, we do admit speakers and exhibitors that are not explicitly “Christian” but that DO provide home educators, both Christian and non-Christian, with information, knowledge, or curriculum that is relevant, useful, and beneficial. Please note that Homeschool Iowa does not necessarily endorse everything found in our exhibit hall or presented in workshops and keynotes. All posted conference details, including the schedule, speakers, workshops/keynotes, exhibitors, etc. are subject to change.
