Registration Info

Walk-In Registration Will Be Open!

On-line registration is now closed but walk-in registrations are welcome! Please plan to join us for one, two or all three days in Naperville!

Spouses Come Free!

The fee for one individual adult really covers two because there is no additional charge when you bring your spouse! Catch the vision together!

Name Badges

Your name badges will not be mailed but will be available for pickup at the convention this year! One less thing to remember to pack!

Young Adults and Teens

We encourage pre-teens (11-12), teens (13-17) and young adults (18+) to attend the convention with you. The registration fee for teens and young adults registering with a parent is $25. A $5 discount is available with early registration. Maximum fee per family is $50, $40 if you register early. Young adults and teens must register on the same form as their parents to receive the discounted $25 rate. Single adults, 18 and over, may attend the convention on their own, but must pay full adult prices if they attend the convention without their parents.

Registration Free for Non-Homeschooling Grandparents and Pastors

We encourage grandparents and pastors and their wives who are not home educating their children or grandchildren themselves to attend this convention ... free! Add their names to your registration or bring them with you and register them at the door. The pastor’s or grandparent’s name should be listed clearly on the registration form of the attending person who is sponsoring the pastor/grandparent, so that a name badge can be customized for them.

Children & Nursing Infants

Our goal is to educate parents! We feel that children will benefit more in the long run from having parents attend the convention than from being there themselves. If you decide to bring your children under 11 years of age, please help keep the convention enjoyable and peaceful by abiding by these guidelines:

  • Nursing infants (15 months & under) may come free with their parents. Due to our roomier facility, strollers are permitted everywhere, even the Exhibit Hall.
  • Children (16 months through 10 yrs) may attend with their parents, but each child attending must pay the fee of $55. Children must be registered on the same form as their parents. Group discounts do not apply. Children must always be accompanied by an adult.
  • Workshop & Featured Sessions: Please be considerate! Young children or nursing infants and their parents should sit near the door of the room, and children who fidget or talk and babies who make disturbing noises—even happy ones—should be removed immediately! Young children under 11 are not permitted to ask questions during any of the sessions. This is an opportunity for educators to educate themselves.
  • Children under 13 cannot be left unattended and must be supervised by an adult at all times.


Vendor Hall Only Passes

Our goal is to equip parents for the great work of discipling godly men and women who will impact their own generation and the generations to come! Being homeschool parents ourselves, we understand the high calling and have found that curriculum alone cannot carry us through. With this in mind, ICHE does not issue vendor hall only passes. The Exhibit Hall is only accessible to convention attendees. Your children must be registered as well to access the convention including the Exhibit Hall. Unfortunately, we cannot make exceptions. We appreciate your desire to access the Exhibit Hall and encourage you to come prepared to experience the whole convention, building the vision and supportive community you need for successful home discipleship and education.

Refund Policy

If you have registered for the convention and are unable to attend please send a request for your money back via email to by May 19th. Except for emergencies, there will be no refunds after May 19th. ICHE will deduct $5 from your convention fee for a handling charge.
