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.

Read more about our 3 main initiatives:

  • The POP Co-op for Homeschooling Families (More…)
  • The LUCKY Club, an SDE Support Group (Facebook Page & Band App Community)
  • POP Louisville, a Full Time Self-Directed Learning Community (Info Coming Soon)
  • Living Without School, a Blog by local homeschooling parents about living without school. (Coming soon)

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.
