Thrive! The NCHE Homeschool Conference

May 27-29, 2021   Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Twin City Quarter (Benton Convention Center, Embassy Suites & Marriott)

The NCHE annual homeschool conference strives to help parents homeschool with confidence and joy. Our name, Thrive! The NCHE Homeschool Conference, reflects the goal of the NCHE homeschool conference and mirrors the NCHE vision “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, Encourage and Connect:

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

We are very excited to announce that we will be able to have the NCHE Thrive! Conference this year! We have worked it out that under the NC governor’s April mandate, the conference can happen. While the conference will actually be occurring under the May mandate, we are assuming that the limitations will not get stricter. We are hoping that things will loosen up more in May. Under the April mandate, we will have to observe social distancing and wear masks. While there will be reduced seating in the workshop rooms and limits to attendees and vendors in the vendor hall, we feel that these limits are manageable. We never max out the occupancy of this facility.

Thank you for your flexibility. We will keep you informed of changes as we learn of them from the governor’s office or the convention center.
