Diann Jeppson Portrait 2017


Over the past 20 years, I’ve given countless seminars to hundreds of parents throughout the US and Canada. After a year off, to build and launch Ensign Peak Academy, it’s time to hit the road again!

Moms and Dads – I want to help you to become truly great teachers and mentors for your children.





The Family Centered Education Seminar

An exciting 2-day workshop experience

Presented by Diann Jeppson (Read Bio Here)

As a long time family education coach, I am dedicated to helping your family enjoy a full, rich learning adventure, whether you chose to homeschool or enroll the children in school.

When it comes to the education of our children, there’s nothing worse than having our plans fall flat!

We want them to thrive, and so we invite, coax, strongly suggest, bribe, beg, threaten or just wait and hope they decide to move.   

  •     Should we buy a new curriculum package?          
  •     Sign them up for an online class?
  •     Hire a tutor?
  •     Become better organized?
  •     Take a course on mentoring?

After more than twenty five years of being a homeschooling parent, I can still recall the acute pain I felt as a young mother, at the discovery that teaching children isn’t simply a matter of having the best curriculum. I know that sounds rather naïve, but it was actually a hugely important realization, which led me on a journey…

To discover the skills and understanding of how to succeed with family centered education.

That journey led me through dozens of books on education and family development and then to hundreds of interviews with parents –  exposing me to a broad spectrum of scenarios, challenges and solutions. My vision has always been to find patterns for building great families that produce wise and virtuous individuals.

It has been the most exciting adventure of my life – to deeply engage with every single one of these life changing discoveries in my own family.

Now I want to make available all of my best discoveries, for parents who share my passion for family and education.

I’ve created a powerful and life-changing 2-day, workshop-style seminar for moms and dads who want to take their family’s education to the next level. And you are invited!

What Does the Seminar Look Like?

For many of us, our minds grasp ideas best when they are put into a diagram – so I’ve created this graphic to help you see how the Family Centered Education seminar parts fit together:

The Family Centered Education Seminar covers each area in this diagram, with clear explanations, examples, stories, and workshop activities to help you create family centered education in your home.

I’ve had the privilege of mentoring hundreds of parents. In addition, I’ve listening carefully to the comments and questions of Family Centered Education seminar attendees, in dozens of seminar settings, throughout the US and Canada.

This seminar represents the ideas and input of many parents, collected through surveys, focus groups, seminar comments, and of course more interviews. I am happy to report that dozens of improvements have been included in the current seminar, thanks to the input of parents who have attended the seminar and used my online Family Centered Education Course. I want you to benefit from it too.

Babes-in-arms are welcome.

Parents are invited to attend on their own, or with their spouse. 






It’s time for the start of a new way of thinking about and planning your children’s education, so that you can stop bribing, begging, threatening or just waiting and hoping that great learning will happen.

It’s time for the end of uncertainty and disorganization, the end of a lack of vision and a lack of long-term plans and daily strategies that work.
