Convention 2018: Embrace the Unexpected

The 2017 AHEA Convention went well!

After months of planning and preparation, the 2017 Alberta Home Education Association Convention in Red Deer on April 6 - 8, everything went really well.

THANKS so much to all of our volunteers! More than 2250 people attended the 2017 Convention! *Please mark your calendars for April 12 -14, 2018 and plan to attend!

There has been a lot of positive feedback on the Alberta Home Education Association Facebook Page. (If you want to join that, click the Facebook Button on the left side of this page AND watch for a private message from the moderator. It must be answered before you will be added to the page.

An Important Message

Trinity/WISDOM Reinstated

January 6, 2016

An agreement was reached yesterday between the province of Alberta and Trinity Christian School, the operator of WISDOM Home Schooling.

The Trinity Christian School Association will continue to be registered and accredited – and operate with full funding – under an agreement reached in court on January 5.

Trinity will continue to be responsible for the WISDOM program, and Trinity/ WISDOM expect that day-to-day operations will continue so that home educating families should see no disruption or change in service.

AHEA is thankful that Trinity/WISDOM will continue to operate and to serve Alberta home educating students and families.

During this difficult time, AHEA has advocated for home educators with the Minister and with Alberta Education. AHEA will continue to advocate for home educators to ensure that home education remains a true and viable option in Alberta.

We thank everyone who prayed for home education.
Please continue to pray for the future.
