THSC organizes various events as a service to the home school community of Texas. These events, listed below, are designed for parents, students, friends, supporters, and defenders of the Texas home school movement.
THSC Conventions are unlike any other home school convention. Our goal is to support, encourage, equip, and inspire new or experienced home schooling families. We do this by offering a wide array of workshops to fit every stage of your home schooling life. Our Exhibit Hall vendors are experienced professionals who are available to guide and advise you on the appropriate curricula for your children.
Convention Weekend is great for the entire family! Whether it is Kids Convention, Encouragement by Chocolate for moms, Discipleship with Donuts for dads, or our Saturday evening entertainment, our add-ons make the THSC Convention Experience a one-of-a-kind event.
Be Equipped. Be Encouraged. Be Entertained.
The purpose of the THSC Gala is to spread the vision of THSC and to raise funds to continue the work. Friends and supporters of THSC come together for an elegant dinner and program and recognize the achievements of Texas home school defenders and top achievers. The Gala location alternates between major Texas cities annually.
The THSC State Leadership Conference is an event designed for the instruction and encouragement of local home school group leaders so that they, in turn, can build a stronger home school community. This conference offers workshops and round table discussions specifically addressing the challenges of local leadership and encouraging leaders across Texas.
THSC Capitol Days are the ultimate hands-on experience in state government and a valuable tool in lobbying the legislature on current issues of importance. Students and families meet at the Capitol building in Austin for activities and training in the legislative process and to learn about current pending legislation important to Texas home schoolers. Attendees, divided into teams, spend the afternoon delivering provided packets and lobbying the home school position (discussed in morning sessions) to legislators and their staff.
Responding to the critical need for the legal defense and advocacy of families from false Child Protective Services (CPS) allegations, THSC offers Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars in an effort to build a network of attorneys who are trained and willing to help. THSC offers attorneys FREE registration in exchange for an agreement to handle one pro bono CPS case which is referred by THSC. CLE seminars are held annually in various Texas cities.
