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.
CHRISTIAN TEEN PROGRAM
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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
After June 25, registration will be accepted at the door.
Exhibit Hall Only Pass
We are offering an exhibit hall only pass again this year for those who have limited time and just want to come shop. The pass is $25 per adult and is good Saturday, July 16 from 3:30-6:30 PM only. Exhibit hall only passes may be purchased on-site starting at 3:15 PM Saturday. Passes may not be shared or transferred. AFHE membership is not required nor included with this option. Children and teens age 19 and younger who accompany an adult purchasing the exhibit hall only pass will be charged $10 admission each.
First-Time Attendee Discount Admission
As a means to reach new families with information about homeschooling, AFHE offers a special discount rate to first-time attendees (limit first 500).
We have given out all of the coupon codes for this year's AFHE Convention and are not able to extend the discount to any additional first-time attendees.
While it is too late to take advantage of the first-time attendee discount for this year, we iinvite you to join us for this year's AFHE Convention by registering through the main convention registration link above or you may register at the door for full price. Even at the pre-registration or on-site admission price, you will find it is an excellent value for this very special weekend of encouragement, ideas, information, workshops, and an 80,000 sq. ft. exhibit hall filed with an array of quality curriculum and resourses that you can shop for in one place, being able to see and compare resources in person.
