Wisdom & Experience

One of the core goals of the Homeschool Directive Conference is that attendees can learn from others who have already walked this homeschooling high school journey.

That's why we're so excited that 95% of our speakers and panelists have already graduated a senior from their homeschool (and some more than one!).

Hi, I'm Michele Holmes, founder of Homeschool Directive.

As a homeschool mom of over 30+ years, I know first-hand how scary and overwhelming homeschooling through high school can be. But, I also know how fun, beneficial, and life-giving it can be. So, I made it my goal to develop resources that help homeschooling parents take on the high school years with confidence.

I'm so excited for this opportunity to introduce you to amazing conference speakers and mentor panelists. Many of these individuals have impacted my own homeschooling journey through their work and I know you will gain so much from their wisdom!
