Friday, July 9th

PSP, ISP, Charter, Co-op, Classcal – what?  Hear from Allegiant Christian School’s Administrator as she walks you through the meanings of these homeschooling terms.

It’s not easy, but it’s possible.

In this session you’ll get practical advice and encouragement from a single working homeschool mom.

Candice and Teresa will share their personal journeys on how they have, and continue to teach their multi-ages together: scheduling, strategies, and routines.

Tonya will share Department of Education codes, past and current legislation that pertains to homeschooling.

You can do it !

Teaching high school at home is just as easy as any other grade. Come and hear how it can be done, from a 20-year-veteran, who homeschooled and sent her own two kids to college;  and who has taught many high school students through co-op classes.

Are homeschoolers more successful? What percentage of homeschoolers go to college? Is homeschooling more effective than public school?

We’ll look at current research to answer these questions, and many more.

Some of the best ways to spark creativity, improve problem-solving skills, and to see more details in life happening all around, is through the study/practice of art.

You can keep it simple or dive into all the mess art can cause; either way will help your student (and yourself) to work that creative muscle.

You don’t have to be a math whiz to homeschool your child (children) in this important subject.  Tonya will share various math curricula to help you find which best fits your student and lifestyle.

Pulling your student out of school for various reasons can have a huge effect on their social, emotional, and mental health. Learn how to get through the year without throwing in the towel. 

Have questions or need ideas on how to implement what you learned today? Join the Q & A session with Tonya Salinas, Serena Sanders, Candice Potter, Teresa Thurin & Tatiana Rivera.

Saturday, July 10th

Serving the Lord often brings spiritual battles.  Come receive encouragement to help you through those difficult days.

Confused about all the curriculum noise? How do you decide what to buy, when there are so many options everywhere you look?

In this session we’ll discuss learning styles and how knowing how YOUR child learns can simplify your choices.

Don’t let the word “science” scare you. Come and learn some practical ways to teach science to any age group.

What counts as an elective?  What about Work Experience?  Why are electives required?  How can my child earn elective credit?  Tonya will help you navigate this sometimes confusing topic. 

Learn how to school during your child’s anxiety and depression. How to get through the moment, day, week, and year by recognizing the triggers. 

Is planning taking over your life? Or does the idea of planning for the year make you want to crawl under a rock?

In this session we’ll discuss practical ways to plan a single lesson as well as an entire year in one sitting.  

Homeschooling doesn’t have to be expensive. Join us for some tips and tricks on homeschooling on even the smallest budgets.

Have questions or need ideas on how to implement what you learned today? Join the Q & A session with Tonya Salinas, Serena Sanders, Candice Potter, Teresa Thurin & Tatiana Rivera.
