HOMESCHOOL DAY AT THE CAPITOL

It's Time to Register!

Attendance at Homeschool Day at the Capitol is open to everyone, but we ask that you register so that we know to expect you. Please register your attendance for this event taking place on March 5th, 2024 at the Capitol Building in Atlanta.

Visiting the Capitol and your legislators is always free, but the GHEA educational programming has a small fee. GHEA is offering educational programming, including a keynote address by Will Estrada, the HSLDA Senior Counsel who helps protect Georgia homeschool families. Additionally, classes will be offered on the legislative process.

This year we have arranged a behind-the-scenes tour of the Georgia Supreme Court for older students. NOTE: We've learned that the Court tour will be limited to 50 students at the request of the hosting court officials. We will be contacting the first 50 that registered and paid. We know that some families will be disappointed, but ask that you extend grace and understanding. We will have alternate programming for those that aren't able to do that tour.

Visit your Legislators

We would LOVE for as many families as possible to try to visit their state legislators. Let them know that you are a homeschooler from their district.  You can try to schedule an appointment, or just stop by their office to speak with them or their staff. Be polite, thank them for their service, and leave them with a positive impression of homeschoolers.

You can use enter your home address at this website to find the names of your Georgia Senator (called upper chamber on that website) and Georgia Representative (lower chamber).

A few legislators have offices inside the Capitol, but most are across the street in the Coverdell Legislative Office Building (CLOB). You can search for your Senator and Representative and click on their name to find their office number and learn more about them.
