The Thomas More College of Liberal Arts is systematically renewing the foundations of Catholic culture. In addition to several other initiatives including Sophia Press and Crisis Magazine, Thomas More College has been given the honor of hosting the annual New England Catholic Homeschool Conference. This conference, now in its 4th year, has been a valuable source of information, support, and guidance for many homeschooling families throughout New England. The program will include vendors selling homeschooling curriculum, representatives from various Catholic colleges, and four distinguished speakers who will offer suggestions, moral support, and advice based on real-life experience for homeschooling parents.
The speakers for the 2012 New England Catholic Homeschool Conference are:

Pray. Act. Every Day.
