Certificates are awards you print, fill out, and present to your student for completing classes or units within a class.

Hoeden originally required students to create a project and recite something relevant about their studies from memory to earn certificates. There are no longer ANY requirements at Hoeden.  This allows parents to tailor their student’s education to fit their own homeschooling objectives.

While projects and recitations provide a great incentive to dive deeper into topics and practice researching skills Hoeden no longer requires these steps to earn a certificate.

Mrs. Shelly is a bio-adopt mother to 6 children.  She has been homeschooling since 1999. 👩🏻‍🏫

She is passionate about relaxed, positive homeschooling, foster parenting, adoption, and early college & trade-school options for ages 14+. 

Her vision is to keep Hoeden honest in its depiction of homeschooling. Hoeden is not supposed to be glossy or refined. Modeling natural curiosity and study skills is the goal within this typical class style framework.
