The goal of our 37th Annual Conference is to strengthen the WPA community for all Wisconsin homeschoolers — prospective through seasoned — and their families, by providing accurate information, offering enrichment opportunities, and fostering positive connections.
Strengthen the WPA Community
Wisconsin Parents Association is a state-wide, inclusive, grassroots organization dedicated to protecting the right of parents to provide an education to their children according to their own principles and beliefs. We share the understanding that even though homeschooling families are diverse in their beliefs and backgrounds, we stand together in loving our children, valuing our children’s education, and treasuring our freedom to homeschool. Conference gives us all the opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to this mission, and to each other.
For All Wisconsin Homeschoolers — Prospective Through Seasoned — And Their Families
Conference includes both structured workshop sessions and informal opportunities so you can customize your own experience. It’s a chance for all homeschoolers – adults AND children – to reignite your passion for homeschooling by learning, growing, celebrating, and connecting in many different ways!
Providing Accurate Information
Conference includes our annual Member meeting as well as numerous workshop sessions where you get timely, accurate information about homeschool law, answers to specific questions about homeschooling from experts and veteran homeschoolers, and resources for expanding your knowledge and understanding of Wisconsin homeschool law to share within your own communities.
Offering Enrichment Opportunities
Conference goes beyond “educational” with 40 workshops, a weekend-long collaborative group project, and interactive experiences in the Resource/Vendor Fair. And some of the best moments happen in between anything anyone actually planned — in the corridors between sessions, over late-night take-out in the lobby, splashing around in the waterpark, or playing frisbee outside during lunch.
Fostering Positive Connections
Friday night’s graduate recognition and social time, the perpetual “Connections” conference room for making connections with other homeschoolers, Table Talks for open-ended discussions with board members and seasoned homeschoolers, and a chance to buy and sell used curriculum round out the Conference experience with opportunities to truly engage with your fellow homeschoolers.
