FEBRUARY 28, 2024

9:00 - 11:30 a.m.



MHEA is once again hosting Homeschool Capitol Day at the State Capitol building. If you are planning to attend, we thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you. 


The Mississippi Legislature will be in session during Capitol Day, and MHEA’s primary goal for this event is to build relationships with our legislators and express our continued desire for favorable homeschooling laws and the precious freedoms we enjoy. We have the opportunity to impact the future of home education for years to come … in one single day.



Helpful information

Capitol Day ‪begins at 9:00 a.m. It is a come-and-go event, and we encourage each of you to:

(1) PLEASE STOP BY MHEA’s information table on the first floor. We can help you find your lawmakers’ offices, give general directions in the building, and encourage you to make the most of this valuable time.

(2) VISIT BRIEFLY with your representative and/or senator to express your support for them and ask for their support of your right to homeschool. LOCATE YOUR LEGISLATORS here .

(3) TAKE A GUIDED TOUR of the Capitol building and visit the chamber galleries (schedule a little over an hour). Guided tours are free of charge and conducted by the Department of History and Archives’ volunteers on the first floor of the rotunda. Feel free to join these tours on Monday-Friday at 9:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., or 2:30 p.m. Group and school tours are available by reservation. To schedule a group tour, call 601-359-3114.
