When do classes begin?
Currently, Hoeden at Home is rolling out a “Soft Launch”. Shelly is teaching three classes in October, November, and December 2018 to work out the Kinks and gather much-needed insight from Hoeden parents.
January 7th, 2019 will be our full launch with a full class schedule and more teachers.
All of our teachers are REAL homeschooling parents who are getting used to teaching LIVE online. 😊
Does it cost $5.00 per family or per child?
For the first 1,000 members, the price is $5.00 per month per FAMILY (not per child) and that INCLUDES all of the classes.
Are there extra costs?
You will have regular homeschooling costs, such as buying the books or gear (dance shoes) for class or traveling to your local library to get the books.
Some teachers offer Private Tutoring.
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.
Do we have to watch LIVE online every day?
No. All classes are archived for future viewing on our password protected website.
What if we decide NOT to use the printables and assignments provided by the teacher?
You Rule Your Homeschool! 😊 All assignments are suggested, not required. HOWEVER… in order to earn a Hoeden Certificate of Completion for the class(es) taken, your student(s) will need to perform a recitation and project for the class and
1. tag #HoedenCertified when posting the video of the recitation and photos of the project
2. Also use the class Hashtag for both, in order to earn the certificate.
3. When that is completed, direct message to let her know which class your child has completed for certification.
Can my children work together to earn certificates?
Yes. In most cases, siblings can work as a group and receive separate certificates.
What makes Hoeden at Home a 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 need all of our families to come 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!
Is Hoeden at Home a School?
No, we are not a school. We provide supplemental classes for homeschool families. Although we do offer both academic and elective classes, our classes are not meant to be a complete curriculum.
Why would I want to join a homeschool co-op?
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.
Are your classes taught with a Christian focus?
Hoeden at Home is not religion centered. There will be classrooms where religion is a focused topic. In those cases, the classroom will be clearly labeled as religious so that parents and children can decide if the class is right for their needs.
What ages and grades do you include?
Our classes are intended for Pre-K through 12th grade.
For how many classes would we enroll?
Students may join as many classrooms as they wish. The classes are archived to be used when convenient for the student. All printables are also archived for use.
What curriculum do you use?
Curricula used varies and is up to the teacher. We do not use one specific curriculum.
Do I have to teach?
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.
How Much is a Hoeden at Home Subscription?
The first 1,000 people to sign up will be grandfathered in at $5 per month or $50 per year, depending on which option you choose when signing up.
