HOMESCHOOL IOWA CONFERENCE


2024 Homeschool Iowa Conference
MidAmerican Energy RecPlex
West Des Moines
June 14-15, 2024

Teaching your children – and helping them to be all that they were created to be – is a challenging, complex journey filled with doubts and joy, despair and love, and everything in between.

You wonder if you're up for this staggeringly formidable task.
The answer is "Yes!" And you're not alone.  We're here for you.


2024 Homeschool Iowa Conference

“Welcome Home” to the encouragement and motivation you’ll experience at our 2023 Conference, where you’ll gather new ideas, strategies, vision, and perspective.

Soak in useful information from our outstanding speakers, shop in our expansive exhibit hall, and tap into the special tracks, youth programs, and other custom-designed programming for homeschooling families.

You’ll enjoy an amazing weekend recharging, learning, and connecting. You’ll gain just what you need to walk this beautiful, sometimes challenging, but always incredibly vital homeschooling journey with your family.

Make plans now to join us for our Homeschool Iowa Conference on June 9-10, 2023, in West Des Moines.

WALK-IN REGISTRATION IS AVAILABLE - DOORS OPEN @7:30AM


Nearly a thousand homeschoolers enjoyed a fantastic weekend of excitement and encouragement
at the 2024 Homeschool Iowa Conference!

We came away feeling not only informed and equipped, but also refreshed and rejuvenated for our homeschool journeys, no matter if we're just beginning or have been homeschooling for a while.

The "Welcome Home" 2024 Conference offered us new ideas, strategies, vision, and perspective.

We soaked in useful information from the outstanding speakers, shopped in the expansive exhibit hall, and tapped into the special tracks, youth programs, and other custom-designed programming for homeschooling families.

This was an amazing weekend of recharging, learning, and connecting. 
We gained just what we needed to walk this beautiful, sometimes challenging, but always incredibly vital homeschooling journey with our families.
