The conference mission is to:
• Equip and encourage homeschooling families through an abundance of outstanding speakers and workshops
• Connect and equip homeschoolers with quality curriculum resources through our extensive vendor hall
• Connect homeschool families with each other to build relationships and a strong community
• Celebrate our teens and alums through special workshops, fun activities, fellowship, the talent showcase and our state-wide graduation

“I depend on the conference to show me something new each year, to get me thinking about something I haven't thought about, or just to find a pearl or two.
