The Details

Have you enjoyed the journey of home education but are not sure what to do after graduation? Do you have students that desire to pursue college and yet do not know how to navigate the “maze” of applications, course of study, student loans, etc. ? Well…this is the event for you!

This day-long event incorporates workshop sessions in the morning with a trusted HSLDA consultant and other helpful speakers, followed by  the College and Career Fair in the afternoon.
