Convention 2018: Embrace the Unexpected

About the 2018 AHEA Convention


AHEA is Western Canada’s largest home education convention. We bring in the largest variety of speakers and vendors in all of Canada. We welcome all parents who are interested in home education and we are not exclusionary. Our goal is to simply offer the widest variety of resources to parents. We’ve been doing this for over 30 years. Come join us and check out home education at our annual convention in April, 2018 in Red Deer.

To all Alberta Home Educators and all Alberta parents

On October 25, 2016, Alberta Education announced the shutdown of Trinity Christian School and WISDOM Home Schooling.

At this time, AHEA reminds all home educators and parents of several things…

1 – Those displaced by this shutdown do not need to take any action right now. Keep home educating your children. You have at least a couple of weeks to notify with another private school or home education administration. Take this time. Don’t panic. Don’t make any hasty decisions. The education of your children is too important.

2 – AHEA is currently working with HSLDA to develop options for you to evaluate.This will take at least a few days so please be patient. We will post options for you here soon. This is a stressful time and there is no need to rush your decision.

3 – Remember that allegations against any home education provider are simply that: allegations. Trinity Christian School and WISDOM Home Schooling will no doubt defend themselves in this situation and the truth will come out.

4 – At this time, AHEA asks that you NOT contact government officials.We simply don’t have enough information to ask informed questions or to lobby for certain action.The time for such political action may come. We will certainly ask for your help with that when the time comes. In the meantime, should you choose to speak to your MLA or any government official, please be courteous and civil.

5 – Pray that God’s will is done in this entire situation. That’s a prayer for your own family, for all home educating families, and for home education in Alberta.

Again…. Please stay calm in this difficult situation.

Thank you and bless you,

The board of the Alberta Home Education Association

Trinity Christian School Permission to operate revoked

To all AHEA members and Alberta home educators:

You may hear, from friends or through the news media, that the 'permission to operate' of one of Alberta's school authorities - Trinity Christian School and its home education.

We cannot comment on this situation at this time other than recommending to all home educators to:

A) please pray for all Alberta home educators and

B) take time to carefully consider all options and not make any rash decisions on the education of children.

Thank you.
