Workshop tracks

Every workshop has been assigned to a specific track, but please don’t rely too heavily on track names. Read each workshop description so you know what to expect:

BIBLICAL FAMILY

This track addresses a variety of biblical aspects of family, home, and school. Many of these workshops are presented by our featured speakers.

HOW TO TEACH

Find direction for your family through workshops focusing on a variety of topics such as personality styles, generating a following through social media, and keeping your family safe online.

MIDDLE SCHOOL, HIGH SCHOOL & BEYOND

When preschoolers and elementary kiddos shift into upper grades and careers, homeschooling looks different. Come learn how to continue reaping the blessings of home education as your students mature into upper grades and pursue God’s calling.

COMPASS

Whether you’re homeschooling while single (or feel single because of your spouse’s vocation), wanting the nuts and bolts on fostering and/or adopting, or considering a writing career as a mom, this track gives direction in a variety of very specific areas.

STRUGGLING LEARNERS

Each year our special needs coordinator invites experts in this field to help us help our students learn. Whether your child struggles with dyslexia, autism, or the unique needs of gifted learners, you will be encouraged!
