Kentuckiana's only secular cottage school enrichment program

Parent Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our families say:

Jump in! Don’t wait because classes fill up quickly. My children count down the days whenever LHCP is on break because they cannot wait to go back. The teachers and staff are amazing. They do so much. It has really given my children that consistent friend group that they’ve been looking for.

I am so happy that we made the decision to enroll our kids here! It has provided a safe and fun learning opportunity for our kids! They talk non stop about what they did that day and the friends they have made. With LHCP you get a perfect balance of experiencing a school-like setting and getting to homeschool. Thank you teachers and staff for all the hard work that goes into making LHCP so amazing

We cannot thank you enough for providing this welcoming resource to homeschoolers in the Kentuckiana area. Thank you! We are so thrilled to have finally found a home in such a lovely community.  My kids are so happy which is such a relief.

We have loved attending LHCP. We have gone through almost every other cottage program in Louisville over the years, and this is the first one we have really felt welcomed at. Thank you so much for this wonderful program

Teacher was amazing and kind…This teacher explained things and encouraged children to learn and help each other. It was fun to see the work displayed on boards and rotated weekly. The writing exercises were wonderful and provided room for individual Thinking and facts.

A few things we’re great at

Louisville Homeschool Cottage Program is different
than any program you will find in Kentuckiana.  


At LHCP, we want to do as much as we can for the environment.  We recycle and help the children recycle.  We require each student to come with reusable placemat, napkin, and silverware for lunch.  We use real plates, cups, and flatware for all of our parties, potlucks, and lunches.  Caring for the Earth is integral to our philosophy. 


Beyond offering fantastic classes, LHCP focuses on community building.  You will find the best parts of traditional schooling in our program including potlucks, showcases, parties, et cetera.  One of our goals to provide a welcoming and loving community for our homeschoolers.  


LHCP is the ONLY secular, inclusive program in the Kentuckiana area.  We welcome people of all religions, agnostics, and atheists.  We want everyone to feel safe and included.  We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion or lack thereof, gender, age, political affiliation, sexual orientation, gender expression, or disability.


LHCP strives to instill autonomy and responsibility in our students.  Each child is responsible for cleaning up after themselves, helping teachers and classmates, and doing lunch chores to keep our facility clean.  We believe that responsiblity and community are key elements in developing good citizens.
