Convention FAQs

We have compiled a list of the most commonly asked questions and provided answers on our Convention FAQ page. Please review the CONVENTION FAQ before registering for the convention.

Children / Teens

We love children and you are welcome to bring your child/children with you, however this conference is geared for parent / teacher enrichment and learning and space is limited in workshop rooms, so we encourage you to make childcare arrangements.

Teens and children (age 3 and up) will be charged an admission fee of $10 each. Infants (age 2 and under) are admitted free. A curtained mothers' area will be available in the exhibit hall for nursing and feeding. Children under age 12 must remain with an adult at all times.


Teen Program details will be available in January.


Unmarried homeschooled graduates that are attending college or still living at home may register for the convention at the $10 child/teen rate if they register with their parents. Married graduates or those living on their own must register separately and pay the adult admission fee.

Non-Homeschooling Grandparents

We value the importance of grandparents in the homeschooling process and welcome grandparents at the convention! Non-homeschooling grandparents are always free if they attend with their adult child who is registered for the convention. Grandparents who are still homeschooling one or more of their own children must register separately and pay the admission fee.

Non-Homeschooling Pastors

As a means to share the vision of home education and to build strong relationships with churches, we invite non-homeschooling pastors of Arizona churches to attend the convention free of charge. This offer is extended to pastors who do not teach their own children at home currently, but are interested in learning more about homeschooling. Please have your pastor contact us at convention@afhe.org to receive registration instructions.

Pastors who are homeschooling one or more of their children must register as a regular attendee and pay the admission fee.

On-Site Registration

After June 24, registration will be accepted at the door.
