Miami Dade Homeschool Day 2014

An Informational & Networking Event for Homeschool Families

Join us for a day of encouragement, guidance, and networking!

FPEA District 4 is sponsoring the first-ever Miami Dade Homeschool Day on November 1. This event will be a place for local homeschoolers to come be encouraged as well as network with other local homeschoolers and learn more about the opportunities for us in the area!

  • Learn what homeschooling is all about
  • Share your stories with other homeschool families
  • Network with HS groups, coops & enrichment programs
  • Hear the latest news & information that impact homeschool

We will have speakers there to address the different issues affecting homeschoolers in our local area, to encourage veteran and rookie homeschoolers, as well as those who are just considering it, and to answer all your questions!
Want your group showcased?
