Public Events

You may find us at any number of homeschool and alternative education conferences throughout the year. Our two most popular talks are: How to Get Your Child into Harvard or Stanford and How Young People Can Lead Remarkable Lives. If you plan on attending a homeschool or alternative education conference and you don’t see us listed as a speaker/presenter, please reach out to the conference organizers and request that they invite Abrome.

Additionally, we are willing to set up presentations for community groups consisting of at least five families in Central Texas, or eight families nationally. Please contact us if you would like to host such a gathering.
