The IAHE wants to encourage grandparents to become knowledgeable about home education and value the contributions they offer. Therefore, grandparents may attend for free when registered as part of a Family Registration. The grandparent’s name(s) must be included on your registration form.

Children & the Convention

Children are welcome throughout our convention. Please be sensitive to the other attendees and try to sit toward the back of the room so that you can easily take your children out if they become disruptive. Please be aware that sessions are recorded. We also ask that you keep seats available for adults and allow some of your little ones to sit on your laps or on the floor by you if additional seating is needed. All children in the Exhibit Hall age three (3) and younger must be carried or in a stroller. This is for their safety and the safety of others.

Learning Express

Within the Exhibit Hall and included in either type of registration, The Learning Express offers a program for children to enjoy.

Teens - CREW 4:12

Teens are encouraged to be a part of CREW 4:12.

**Space is limited. Register early. Teens must attend both days and have a parent onsite during the convention.


The IAHE is an all-volunteer organization and we certainly need help with many tasks and events throughout the year, including our Convention. This year, we have merged our volunteer program with a teen/young adult staffing program. (Information on this teen program is available on the website.) If you enjoy being involved through serving, please send an e-mail to for more information.


The concession stand in the March Blue Ribbon Pavilion (Exhibit Hall) will be open during convention hours. To help with your planning, visit our On-Site Dining Options page. You may also bring your own food in coolers, stocked with food from home or picked up from grocery stores or restaurants on the way!


Room blocks with special pricing has been arranged with nearby hotels, all located within 10 miles of the Fairgrounds. To receive our special group rate, you must mention the IAHE Convention when you make your reservation.

Please see our Hotels Page for full details and direct links.


The Indiana State Fairgrounds charges $5/day per vehicle. Please be advised that there is no re-entry without charge. As you might expect, plenty of parking is available and free shuttle service is available as well both morning and evening for those parked at a distance.

Exhibit Hall

Many organizations, publishers, and businesses serving the homeschooling community will be represented – displaying textbooks, teaching materials, and enrichment aids for on-site examination and purchase. Your convention registration includes unlimited access to the Exhibit Hall. Please support our exhibitors with your patronage.

Audio Recordings

All General Sessions and most workshops presented by the featured speakers will be recorded so that you may review or share the messages with others long after the convention. Please check the program book for the location of the booth where recordings are sold.

Handicap Accessibility

The convention workshops and Exhibit Hall are handicapped accessible.

Cancellation Policy

Registration fees are nonrefundable. Unredeemed registrations are considered a tax-deductible contribution to IAHE and, upon written request, we will provide a receipt for tax purposes.
