As a homeschooler, we invest long hours in educating our children. This year, because of the pandemic, many families may feel isolated in this adventure. Or the routine has set in, and there is a lack of novelty. Or a particular obstacle slows down the journey. Here we offer you an anti-discouragement and anti-routine “energy bar”: the ACPEQ Conference!
Are you tired? Take a break to renew your strength.
Are you frustrated? This year has been particularly fertile in unexpected events that have wasted your time and energy? Take a break to take stock and review your priorities.
Have you lost confidence? Give yourself a break to focus on your mission before getting back on the road.
Do you have the desire to explore new ideas?
The Conference aims to meet your needs by providing opportunities for enriching encounters, gaining new knowledge, encouragement, the opportunity to share your own experience, etc. Our speakers and workshop leaders will address various topics for the benefit of your mind and heart:
- The role of the parent educator;
- Practical ways of home-schooling;
- the pleasure of learning;
- how to teach children throughout their primary and secondary years;
- options for post-secondary education;
- youth workshops and more!
We’ve also thought about your children and teens by organizing workshops where they can learn and have fun.
While waiting to hold a graduation ceremony in person, Patrice Boileau, President of ACPEQ, will address the graduates during a workshop dedicated to youth who completed high school at home.
We invite you to come and share with us this “energy bar” that we all so desperately need at this time!

Some time ago, I did a rather peculiar experiment with my children, which I shared on the ACPEQ Members Facebook group (some of you have probably seen it). The experiment consisted in taking two identical fresh fruits or vegetables (in this case, lemons), placing them in two separate dishes, in the same room, under the
