What is POP Louisville INC?

POP Louisville Inc is a non-profit organization, dedicated to promote, support and practice Self-Directed Education in Louisville KY and beyond.  We aim to provide the optimizing conditions to best support SDE for homeschooling families in a space that promotes respectful relationships and offers unlimited time for free play.

We are a secular and inclusive group.

Where Does the POP co-op meet?

POP Louisville Co-op meets inside Fourth Presbyterian Church. (We are not affiliated with the church, other than renting their beautiful space.)

This is near the UofL main campus, at 3016 Preston Hwy Louisville KY. (map link)

POP is a place where people of all ages and abilities get together to play, work, learn, and connect.
