ABOUT

We are homeschooling parents in the DC Metropolitan area who have decided to give our scholars a night to remember. Some of them are graduating class of 2020, and others are excited to participate in an elegant evening just for high school teens.

 

The event is for homeschooled students (including homeschool alumni) ages 14-19 and their guests. If you have been invited by a homeschool family, then you are welcome to attend with them.  This year's theme is Royalty! Crowns are encouraged!
