Conferences 2011 End of Season

Each year there are about two dozen Catholic homeschooling conferences in the United States and many more curriculum fairs and information nights. Homeschooling Catholic will come out with two important conference listings each year. In September, as soon as conference season is over (the conference season goes from March through August), we will post a ranking of conferences by attendance. In February, we will post a listing by date with dates, locations, and links.

The attendance figures used by Homeschooling Catholic are independently estimated and may not be identical with the official figures used by individual conference organizers. Unfortunately, different conferences often have different criteria for counting, and thus official figures are not always good for comparison. Homeschooling Catholic’s actual estimates are not posted in order to avoid any dispute with individual organizers. Our numbers only count persons 13 years of age and older.
