Learning from the Best

Wildflowers Academy is an inclusive, secular cottage school program that is dedicated to providing homeschooled children the opportunity to participate in fun, educational classes with peers of the same age range.

Wildflowers serves families from all around Kentucky and Indiana, including Louisville, Oldham County, Taylorsville, New Albany, Clarksville, Salem and Corydon. As an open and affirming program, Wildflowers respects that all families are unique and all families are valid. There is a safe space for everyone here.

Wildflowers pulls from many of the best education philosophies to create an eclectic, engaging, child-centered learning experience. The program is different than any you will find throughout Kentiuckiana. These are the four tenets that guide Wildflowers in building a strong foundation from which classrooms can flourish.

SECULAR AND INCLUSIVE

Wildflowers Academy is one of the only secular, inclusive cottage programs 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 and identity, or disability.

COMMUNITY

Beyond offering fantastic classes, Wildflowers Academy focuses on community building. You will find the best parts of traditional schooling in our program including cooperative projects, class parties, and theme days. One of our goals is to provide a welcoming community for our families so that they form connections that support their homeschool journeys in our classrooms and beyond.

CARING FOR OUR EARTH

At Wildflowers Academy, we want to do as much as we can for the environment. We recycle and help the children recycle. We learn about composting, reusing, and waste reduction. We require each student to come with reusable placemat, napkin, and silverware for lunch. Caring for Earth is integral to our philosophy.

RESPONSIBILITY

Wildflowers Academy 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 responsibility and community are key elements in developing good citizens.

Parent Testimonials

As Levar Burton says, “You don’t have to take my word for it” – here’s what our parents say:

Jump in! Don’t wait because classes fill up quickly. My children count down the days 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… you get a perfect balance of experiencing a school-like setting and getting to homeschool.

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.

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.

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
