Do you need a boost of inspiration, motivation, and encouragement for the homeschool adventure? You won’t want to miss this year’s AFHE Convention! With nearly 4,000 in attendance, it is the largest gathering of homeschoolers in our state each year. There’s nothing quite as energizing as being together with thousands of other parents who are on the same journey with their families that you are.

We offer a speaker line-up that is sure to inspire with something for everyone! And you’ll enjoy the only homeschool shopping experience of its kind in the state with approx. 140 exhibitors all in one place offering some of the finest curriculum and resources on the market.

We look forward to a refreshing weekend July 10-11, 2020 together with the greater Arizona homeschool community.

More details are coming soon! Convention pages are being updated with 2020 info.

Our team is working hard to get all of the Convention pages updated as quickly as possible so you have all of the information you need to prepare for this rewarding 2-day conference created especially for homeschool families!

Thank you, sponsors!

Special thanks to our 2020 AFHE Convention sponsors whose support assists AFHE in serving homeschool families all year long and enhances the Convention experience for our attendees.

We value the importance of grandparents in the homeschooling process and welcome grandparents at the AFHE 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.


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

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/feeding infants. Children under age 12 must remain with an adult at all times.

Homeschooled students ages 12-18 are invited to participate in the 2020 AFHE Convention Teen Program for $30. Space is limited. This special two-day program is educational, and fun! The Teen Program registration fee includes admission to all of the Convention.

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

NOTE: If a workshop room is full, we ask you to have your younger child sit on your lap, if possible. Since the convention is geared toward parent education and equipping, we want as many adults as possible to have the opportunity to sit in on a workshop. If your child is fussy/noisy, please step out of the workshop with them until they quiet. 

While we are all parents and appreciate that children make noise, we want to respect that many attendees have made childcare arrangements so they can get the most out of the weekend. In addition, the workshops are being recorded and we want to minimize noise in the rooms to get the best quality recordings.

The AFHE Convention is run almost entirely by volunteers. Volunteers are an integral part of the success of the annual Arizona Home Education Convention hosted by AFHE. Our volunteer workers help keep costs to a minimum while continuing to provide an excellent conference. We are thankful to each and every volunteer who helps to make this event a success!

Learn more information at the volunteer webpage

Volunteers who serve 5 or more hours* during the convention can earn free admission. Those interested in volunteering will complete an online application. Once scheduled, you will receive a special registration link. *Married couples can split the hours, but must work a minimum of 6 hours between husband and wife.

The opportunity to volunteer is a benefit of membership. Current AFHE Membership expiring August 1, 2020 or later is required.


Photographs or video taken at this event may be published in the AFHE magazine, on the AFHE website, on AFHE social media pages, or in other AFHE publications. AFHE does not provide compensation or royalties in conjunction with publication or use of these materials. Any photographs, video, or audio used by AFHE from this event will be used with the purpose of celebrating and promoting homeschooling in Arizona.


We are pleased to announce that we will provide a book check just inside the exhibit hall to the right just inside the door across from the AFHE Mentoring Moms Booth. You’ll be able to leave your purchases and strollers for a small fee with our book check team. Claim numbers will be issued to allow you to pick up your items or add to your pile.

Stroller and wheeled cart parking is $3 per day with in-and-out privileges for the day.

Due to space limitations and hazards due to blocked aisles, strollers will only be permitted in workshop rooms in the open space at the back of the room. You may park your strollers and roller bags in the book check area for a small fee. Strollers and roller bags are fine in the ballroom and in the exhibit hall.


AFHE will provide a Continuing Education form for foster parents, childcare workers, and others who need to accrue professional development hours. If you need a form, please ask at the registration counter. An AFHE representative will sign the form and the attendee will write in the workshops he/she attended along with the presenters’ names. AFHE does not have information about which sessions qualify for hours needed for the recipient.


As a means to share the vision of home education and to build strong relationships with Christian 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 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.
