2017 Thrive! Program





The NCHE annual conference serves as a celebration of the multi-faceted face of home education in North Carolina. Our name, Thrive! The NCHE Homeschool Conference, reflects the goal of the NCHE conference and mirrors the NCHE mission "NCHE has a vision for flourishing families and thriving generations in which people remain passionate, curious and actively engaged in their faith and in their learning..."

The conference mission is to:
• Equip and encourage homeschooling families through an abundance of outstanding speakers and workshops
• Connect and equip homeschoolers with quality curriculum resources through our extensive vendor hall
• Connect homeschool families with each other to build relationships and a strong community
• Celebrate our teens and alums through special workshops, fun activities, fellowship, the talent showcase and our state-wide graduation

“I depend on the conference to show me something new each year, to get me thinking about something I haven't thought about, or just to find a pearl or two. I really appreciate the wisdom and guidance of those who have finished the journey and those who have perspectives to share at each stage of the journey.”  ~Barbara
