Nothing beats the power of knowing that you are creating a homeschool that brings you joy.
There’s no right or wrong way to homeschool; it’s a unique experience for every family. And regardless of how long you’ve been homeschooling, what curriculum you use, or what requirements you have to follow, there is always room to create a homeschool you love.
And the Homeschool Mama Academy helps you do just that! 🥳
When you create your homeschool, the unnecessary stress, comparison, and feeling of not being good enough all melt away.
Your membership to the Homeschool Mama Academy gives you instant access to a growing library of resources that will equip you on your journey of creating a homeschool you love.
Homeschooling without the Homeschool Mama Academy is like traveling without a suitcase.
Sure. You can carry everything in your arms, pick up each item one by one, and hope you don’t drop anything along the way. But eventually your arms get tired. And it’s inevitable that you will drop something and either have to stop to pick it up again or lose it altogether.
Wouldn’t you rather have everything you need
in one, easy-to-use, place?
I’ve been in the thick of homeschooling for more than six years and I can tell you I’ve had my fair share of not feeling good enough, being overwhelmed with all of the choices and directions of homeschooling, and comparing my homeschool (and kids) to others.
It’s why I’ve made it my mission to lock arms with other homeschool mamas and serve them in a way that empowers them to make changes, create their own path, and homeschool in a way that brings them joy.
From totally overwhelmed
TO AN UNSTOPPABLE HOMESCHOOLING MAMA
(yep, that’s you!)
Inside the Homeschool Mama Academy, you’ll learn to homeschool in a way that brings you the most joy!
Not to mention the one-on-one support, connection with other homeschool mamas, and self-development – all packaged up in an easy-to-consume, on-demand membership platform to help you create your homeschool!
Take A Look Inside
The Homeschool Mama Academy
I’ve taken everything I’ve learned from creating a homeschool that brings me joy, from navigating homeschool laws to learning without worksheets, and turned it into a community where you can be equipped, feel empowered, and have support to do the same for your homeschool.
Here’s what you get when you join the Homeschool Mama Academy
A growing space full of workshops, printables, and more!
The resource library will have new drops of content occasionally throughout the year and is exclusive to members only. You won’t find these resources anywhere else 😉
These resources might be specific to the time of year, a type of homeschooling method, or simply resources I’ve noticed that you’ve been asking for or need 👏🏽 They might be video-based, printables, guides, templates, or anything else that I think would be beneficial to your homeschooling journey!
And, the best part, it will all be organized by what season you are journeying through in your homeschool. We will have resources for the new homeschooling mama, a space for fresh homeschooling ideas, and a corner for those of you who are ready to level-up.
Quarterly bundles of intentional resources to help you level-up in your homeschool!
Four times a year, I am going to share a huge content pack to help you create your homeschool. But here’s the thing… These packs will only be available to download the first 10 days of each quarter. A new pack will launch in January and be available for you to download through January 10.
→ NOTE: You must be an active member during that time in order to download the pack. Yep, this means new members will not have access to previous content packs… It’s just an added perk for being a loyal member 😉
Unlike other homeschool “bundles” you might have seen, I am not going to simply throw some resources into a big digital envelope and hand it over to you. Nope. 🙅🏽♀️
The Create Your Homeschool Content Packs will be jam-packed full of resources you actually need to create a homeschool you love. And it’s just for mama. 😉 You’ll find guidebooks, printables, mini-courses, and more all centered around the monthly challenges to help you be intentional and focus on what really matters in your home and homeschool.
It’s time to get intentional about the homeschool experience you want to create!
A highly-requested section of the Homeschool Mama Academy, the Monthly Challenges. Each month, we will we through a challenge that will help you focus on an area of growth as a homeschool mama.
These challenges will directly support you in creating a homeschool that brings you joy. No matter where you are in your homeschooling journey, the monthly challenge will be something any homeschool mama can jump into.
You’ll see monthly challenges for things like:
- Mastering Your Morning
- Screen-Free Learning
- Intentional Moments
Dig deeper, get better results!
Members get access to a secret podcast feed that allows us tackle the highs, lows, and in-betweens of homeschool life – It’s the stuff they don’t tell you in the glossy brochures and Pinterest-perfect homeschool boards 😉
The major perk of the secret podcast is that we get to be personal around here. We can go as deep into the nitty gritty of homeschooling as y’all wanna go! And on the last Wednesday of each month a Q&A episode will drop where I answer all of your homeschooling questions that will help you and other homeschool mamas create a homeschool they love!
The Homeschool Mama Academy equips you with a no-fluff, actionable method of homeschooling that is personalized to you.
Set yourself up for success while working on your personal growth as a mama.
The moment you join, you get instant access to the entire resource library, the current challenge, and every single episode of the Homeschool Mama Academy Secret Podcast.
“I think I’ve used every part of the Academy at some point…”
I’ve been a member of the Homeschool Mama Academy for over a year now and I can’t think of anything I’d add to the Academy. I think I’ve used every part of it at some point.
The most useful thing about the Academy is the ability to connect with other moms. I really like the social feed where everyone shares things they do in their homeschool – VERY VALUABLE! But I also love that Shela is always adding content – masterclasses, printables, partners, etc., and I definitely appreciated the member discounts for curriculum this year! I am always excited about the new pieces of content Shela unveils!
Previously, I was chatting with others in a message thread and one of the moms shared a resource she had found after we had all been brainstorming together. The Homeschool Mama Academy is such a fun way to connect with other homeschooling mamas!

“My favorite thing about the Academy is the resources and the community to brainstorm ideas & solutions!”
I am so excited to use what I learn inside the Homeschool Mama Academy to actually stay consistent in our homeschool and instill a love of learning in my children.
The most useful thing about the Academy is the free resource area! Especially the print-and-go resources! At the beginning of the school year, I kept coming back for tips on planning and making this year better than the last for my six kiddos!

“I came into the Academy with almost no knowledge of homeschooling…”
Shela has created an environment that I WANT to be involved in and has that constant renewed energy that draws me back in. That’s really hard to do…
Homeschool Mama Academy has given me the motivation to homeschool my child and it has equipped me with the tools to do so. I came into the Homeschool Mama Academy with almost no knowledge of homeschooling, other than ‘I want to do that’ – and here we are, over a year later, doing the thing!
The best part has been learning that the way we thought we had to homeschool isn’t the only way! Homeschool Mama Academy has opened my eyes to a whole adventurous way of learning and so many people to go on the adventure with!

“I literally had no clue how I was going to homeschool…”
I am so thankful to have found the Homeschool Mama Academy. My oldest is only 3 but I literally had no clue how I was going to homeschool, only that I was going to no matter what.
There are resources for EVERYONE and it has really made finding fun engaging activities easy, for even my toddler. I recommend this to any parent trying to figure out how they’re going to homeschool or even the ones who already are and just want it to be a smoother ride.

“I love that the community attracts people from all over…”
I love being a part of Homeschool Mama Academy. It’s a nice community that I can turn to for resources and support.
I love that the community attracts people from all over because it means more experiences being shared. I had no idea how much things varied from state to state until sharing in this group!

“The topics are exactly what I need when I need it…”
Thank you, Shela, for your amazing content. I am really blown away at the quality of your content and just how engaging it is.
There are so many people sharing homeschooling content out there, but I always come back to yours because of how amazing it is! And the topics are exactly what I need when I need it!
— Sarah L.

“There is so much information here…”
There is so much information in this space! I thought about homeschooling at the beginning of the year and what I have learned just from reading a few posts is REALLY pushing me to do it!!

Hey! I’m Shela
I’m a homeschooling mama of three, an expert at developing systems & processes, and my passion is supporting, empowering, and equipping homeschool mamas in creating a homeschool they love.
I went from overwhelmed and struggling to check the homeschool to-do box everyday, to a mama who knows her worth and is thriving in a homeschool routine that brings joy to myself and my family.
You can’t do this homeschooling thing alone.
And with the Homeschool Mama Academy, you don’t have to!
Questions you might be asking…
The Academy is for literally any mama who wants to be a better version of herself and create a homeschool she loves! The Academy focuses more on supporting homeschool mamas, than providing grade-specific or style-specific content! However, members always have direct access to me – so if you have an idea for something you need or want to see in the Academy, you can always request it & we will see if we can make it happen!
Regardless of the plan you choose (quarterly or monthly), everyone gets access to the same content. You get instant access to the growing resource library, that month’s challenge (you do not get access to previous challenges), the quarterly content pack for that quarter, and access to every episode every created for the Homeschool Mama Academy Secret Podcast!
As a member, you always have direct access to me, Shela, for quick advice or any questions you might have! And I am always happy to help in any way I can!
Create Your Homeschool, at its core, is all about kindness, inclusion, & love over all! The mamas in this community know it’s a safe, positive, non-judgmental space where they are all welcomed with open arms!
My personal belief is in Jesus, and occasionally you might see a faith-based product, the topic of church might come up in the community, or other religious topics, but there are no faith requirements to be a part of this space.
And we welcome your thoughts, discussions, and ideas surrounding your faith & beliefs as well, as long as all discussions remain respectful!
We aren’t here to cause more division in the world, there’s enough of that. This homeschool membership exists to simply connect with one another & become better homeschool mamas. 🥰
In the days of Netflix password sharing, we all want to help out a friend in need. But at Create Your Homeschool, we know that there is value in being intentional and making the commitment to yourself and your homeschool by enjoying your own membership to the Homeschool Mama Academy.
Each mama accessing the content inside the Academy should have her own account to protect the integrity of the space. Please do not share resources, links, exclusive content, video, screenshots, or any other part of the Academy with others.
