Frequently Asked Questions

“No stress! You rule your homeschool!”

Hoeden at Home is a tool for homeschooling families to use as they see fit. You decide what your student(s) are required to do, not us.

Hoeden at Home is an online co-op. We are a dedicated group of families who co-labor to provide a safe place for homeschooling families to learn, grow, and make new friends. We appreciate all of our families coming together as a community to create a peaceful, supportive environment for all. Answering new members questions kindly and supporting one another through tough times is part of the Hoeden at Home Community way. We are thankful for all of our members!

No, we are not a school. We provide supplemental classes or homeschooling families. Although we do offer both academic and elective classes, our classes are not meant to be a complete curriculum.

A homeschool co-op provides parents and students with friendship, a support system, social activities, and educational opportunities. Children like Hoeden at Home because they get a chance to showcase their work online to show family and friends what they are accomplishing in their homeschool. They also get to choose various teachers to fit their personal style of learning.

No. Though we encourage parents to teach what they know if they have a talent or trade, you will not be required to teach…ever!

You will have regular homeschooling costs such as buying the books for class or traveling to your local library to borrow the books, pencil and paper for note-taking, and some classes, such as cooking and science experiments, have supply lists for each lesson. There are a few classes listed as CIH (Curriculum in Hand) which require books (explained below).

Our classes are intended for Pre-K through 12th grade. You can see what classes we have to offer in any of the Class List tables and you can find out more about a class in the Course Descriptions.

The curricula used varies and is up to the teacher. We do not use one specific curriculum.

CIH stands for Curriculum In Hand. This means our copyright agreement with the publisher requires subscribers to own the curriculum if they want access to these classes. We currently have 3 CIH classes – Learn Math Fast, Life of Fred, and Grammar Galaxy. To participate in these classes, you must send proof of ownership to Shelly Mabe and request to join the Facebook group for that class where you will find the password to its archive.

Students may participate in as many classes as they wish. All classes are archived for you to use at your convenience.

Think of Hoeden as if you are choosing classes in College. Each teacher and class will have a different ‘spin’ if you will. Hoeden at Home is not based on any “one thing”. Be sure to read the class and teacher description in the “About” section of each classroom. If religion is not specifically stated then assume it will be taught without religion intertwined. On the flip side, there will be classrooms where religion is a focused topic and will be labeled as such.

New classes are starting all the time! Hoeden at Home runs on a year-round schedule and our teachers choose their class schedules based on their own availability. You can see which classes are starting soon, currently running, or completely archived in the Class List tables.

No. All of our classes are archived right here on our website after they are held LIVE. Students can watch LIVE in our Facebook Classrooms, watch the archives, or waffle between both!

“You rule your homeschool!” All assignments are suggested, not required.

Certificates are awards you print, fill out, and present to your student for completing classes or units within a class. We encourage students to create a project and recite something relevant about their studies to earn certificates. This provides a great incentive to dive deeper into topics on their own and practice researching skills as they accumulate new knowledge for their projects. If you don’t like the project or recitation suggested by the teacher, you and your student can choose a different one to suit your needs and their interests.

Private tutoring is NOT related to Hoeden at Home. All terms for private tutoring should be negotiated with the teacher. Do your due diligence when hiring a tutor.
