CINCINNATI, Sept. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Homeschool Conventions, Inc. (GHC, http://www.greathomeschoolconventions.com) is gearing up for a series of five regional homeschool conventions across the U.S. in 2012. First up: the Southeast Homeschool Convention (http://www.southeasthomeschoolconvention.com), March 22-24, 2012, at the TD Convention Center in Greenville, South Carolina -- and with a homeschool curriculum exhibit hall, hundreds of homeschooling workshops, dozens of key speakers, and tracks just for teens, parenting and creation apologetics, GHC is expecting the convention to attract thousands of homeschoolers from the Carolinas, Georgia, Tennessee and Virginia.
"More and more families are choosing to homeschool for a variety of reasons," stated Mary Jo Dean, a homeschool parent who co-founded Great Homeschool Conventions, Inc., in 2006 with her husband Brennan. "The Southeast Homeschool Convention was created to help encourage and equip those families and help them to create positive homeschool experiences. We anticipate a packed convention center."
The Southeast Homeschool Convention will kick off Thursday, March 22, 2012, with the first of what will literally be hundreds of information-packed homeschooling workshops. The homeschool curriculum exhibit hall will be open all weekend and already has over 100 confirmed exhibitors, including My Father's World, the Institute for Excellence in Writing, Math-U-See, Creation Ministries International and Homeschool Legal Advantage.
Speakers slated to participate in the Southeast Homeschool Convention include author and Colson Center for Christian Worldview founder Chuck Colson; Andrew Pudewa; Diana Waring; Dr. Jay Wile; Sonya Shafer; David Hazel; Amanda Bennett; Dr. Jonathan Sarfati; "Homeschool Your Struggling Learner" author Kathy Kuhl; and nearly three dozen other noted homeschool speakers, authors and advocates.
Throughout the Southeast Homeschool Convention, parents can attend over 100 workshops covering all academic subjects and spanning all educational levels. Special workshop topics will also be offered, including gifted children, learning styles, unit studies and special needs. Those who want more in-depth instruction on faith-based homeschooling can also participate in specific workshop tracks dedicated to Parenting, Creation Apologetics or the Worldview Teen Track. For families with younger children, the Southeast Homeschool Convention also offers an exciting children's program throughout the weekend.
"Great Homeschool Conventions, Inc. is excited to start the 2012 homeschool convention season in the Southeast," Dean said. "Last year's Southeast convention drew thousands of homeschooling families from South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. We know there are many families in that region who are looking forward to the chance to connect with other homeschoolers and get the information and resources they need to thrive at homeschooling."
