“I’m so thankful for the incredible introductory seminar that the Rocky Mountain Homeschool Convention offered. It put my mind at ease to start our homeschool journey, answered every question we had about starting homeschooling and gave great encouragement (and excitement!) to start school at home this fall. Thank you CHEC and Stephen Craig, for laying out the foundation so simply, and taking away the guesswork of the Colorado laws, and what’s required of parents. We’ll also be signing up with CHEC, as they take away the stress of submitting anything to the public school system. Thank you again!”
