A Bachelor's Degree by 18: You can do it too!
This practical session focuses on how students can incorporate Accelerated Distance Learning into their homeschool schedule. Topics covered include: the foundations of effective learning, balancing academics and spiritual development, and earning college credit while still in high school. Learn how you can earn a college degree before your high school graduation.

Education: The Founding Fathers' Way
Mentors, classics, and narratives: the building blocks of our Founding Fathers education. With the age-segregated systems of todays schools where children are placed on a Conveyor Belt and academics, education, and life integration are components of manufactured students, individuals like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and John Quincy Adams would not stand a chance. Learn about the underground movement instigated by secular humanists during the late 19th and early 20th century and their application of Darwinian principles to modern schooling which created the public school system we know to-day, including such recent additions as high school.

Your College Degree: Faster, for Less, & for Sure!
For many homeschooling families, answering the question of whether or not to attend traditional college is a difficult task. Oftentimes the cost, time required, or negative college environment are too great an obstacle. Sadly, many families either choose against at-tending college or borrow multiple thousands of dollars to do so.

Life After High School: Training Starts Now
In a day when education standards have plummeted and the job industry is glutted with a lackluster and clogged employee base, there is tremendous opportunity for those with passion and skill. This information-packed session prepares students to launch into the next phase of life with vigor, excellence, and confidence. Topics include: how to dress for success, creative conversation techniques, essential character qualities, time management, résumé and business building, and more! Today’s activities and choices will either help or hinder future successes. Look out world—the next generation of leaders is on their way.

College Credit by Exam: No Classroom Required!
Who said you need to be in a classroom for an entire semester to earn college credit? With Credit by Exam, students can earn college credit on over 300 standardized subject exams.

Confessions of A Home School Graduate
In this session, Woody describes the challenges he faced while growing up as a part of the first generation of home school students. Starting in the days when homeschooling was still outlawed in many states, he discusses the questions he was most asked, main concerns of his parents, the fears that he overcame, and the top benefits he's found. Leave this session with renewed vision for the priorities of homeschooling and tremendous benefits!

Doing Something Great OR Dreams, Desires, and Decisions: A Look at Your Life Purpose

It will cover some of the fundamental issues vital to understanding Gods will and will then help the student break their vision into bite-sized pieces so they can begin living out their God-given dreams with drive and enthusiasm.

Fathers: Raising a Generation With Vision & Purpose
In this day of heightened animosity towards Christianity and biblical standards, young people long for the involvement and support of their fathers.

Living Happily Ever:  After a Modern Day Love Story (with wife, Gina Robertson)
A dreamy story that begins with once upon a time usually ends with happily ever after. Yet, between those wonderful words are times of tears, conflict, questions, resolution, and laughter. Join Woody and Gina as they take you behind the scenes of their own courtship experience and reveal how the Lord orchestrated events in their life, bringing them to the point of saying, I do!

Study Like a Genius, Unlocking Your Brain
All learning is founded on one key—the ability to take in information and then remember it. Unfortunately, most students are never taught how to effectively learn. Each school year, students spend countless hours studying, only to have the information seemingly disappear when they need it most. Whether a parent or a student, in this interactive session, you will learn how to use study tools such as speed reading and memory techniques to exponentially increase your study potential! Discover practical ways to implement memory tools such as the “peg” system and mindmaps in academics, work, or everyday life.

This session is for those who are not afraid to put their creative juices to work, learn some business lingo, and discover practical steps to start and grow your business. Hear stories of entrepreneurs who started small.
