Questions?

Super simple – we do the work for you and send you an email each morning of the event so you can click the link and immediately play the video you want to see. (Each session is about 45 minutes long, and you can watch from your computer, smart TV, or mobile device.)

No problem! We’ve created the All-Access Pass option; when you upgrade, nothing expires – which means you can watch and rewatch that super-helpful session and soak in all the tips. Click here to learn more.

Yep, for sure! The vendor hall, discounts, and videos listed for free on this page are all just that – no cost to you and no strings attached. (You can opt to register for an All-Access Pass to get even more exclusive video content, but that’s up to you.)

Nope! No social media account is required to view the video sessions. The live keynote was broadcast on Facebook, but it’s also on our website, and all other video sessions are right here too.

We encourage you to connect with us via Facebook to participate in some great discussion and Q&A, but it’s not required.

They are the ministries behind Homeschool Summits. Based in Colorado, both organizations exist to help parents raise their children to love and serve God. CHEC is a state organization that fights for homeschool liberty and helps parents get started homeschooling and stay the journey. (Learn more here.) Generations is a national organization that offers a daily radio program, family events, curriculum, and more. (Learn more here.) Together, they are working to bring Homeschool Summits to your home.
Sure! If you’d like to market this event through your own online platform and receive 50% earnings, learn more here.
Short answer = nope! We ARE pulling together a fantastic lineup of speakers and even shopping options, but it won’t replace attending your local homeschool conference. We highly recommend checking with your state organization (find a list here) for more information about their conferences. As awesome as this summit will be, we still believe that the in-person networking of a local conference is invaluable!
If you decide to upgrade your free event registration to an All-Access pass, you will be eligible to receive continuing education credit.
