The NCHE annual conference serves as a celebration of the multi-faceted face of home education in North Carolina. This year we introduce a new name for our conference: Thrive! The NCHE Homeschool Conference. This new name reflects the goal of the NCHE conference and mirrors the NCHE mission "NCHE has a vision for flourishing families and thriving generations in which people remain passionate, curious and actively engaged in their faith and in their learning..."

Our mission is to:

  • Equip and encourage homeschooling families through an abundance of outstanding speakers and workshops
  • Connect homeschoolers with quality curriculum resources through our extensive vendor hall
  • Celebrate our teens and alums through special workshops, fun activities, fellowship, the talent showcase and our state-wide graduation
  • Encourage our leaders with a special luncheon and a workshop just for them

College and Camp Fair
College admissions and camp representatives are invited to join our one-day event on Friday of our conference. This fair is provided to help connect NC homeschooling families with great opportunities for further education and recreation.
