We are excited to offer this special opportunity for homeschooled teens and their parents to learn about a variety of colleges, universities, community colleges, and trade schools in this three-day online event and to help schools like yours connect with these amazing students.
The VIRTUAL COLLEGE FAIR FOR HOMESCHOOLERS is hosted by Arizona Families for Home Education. AFHE has been serving the homeschool community since 1983, working to encourage and equip parents in the education of their children.

WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT?
During this 3-day event, you simply need to be available to answer questions from students and their parents who participate in the fair that submit questions for you through the contact form we will include on your school’s landing page (virtual booth) on the homeschoolcollegefairs.com website. That’s it!
You do not need to be logged in on the homeschoolcollegefairs.com website during the event. Contacts will come to your email inbox.
This is a super low time-commitment event that we hope will have excellent results for your school!

HOW MANY STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED?
As this is a brand new event, we do not have an estimate for expected attendance yet. However, at our 3-hour in-person college fairs that we have hosted we have had an average of 350 teens and parents.
We are networking with fellow state homeschool organization leaders from across the country to promote the event with us, expanding our reach, and we will be doing Facebook ads and email campaigns to promote it as well. We anticipate a good response, but are unable to quantify that at this time.
