Cottage Schools offer an assortment of classes to homeschoolers and can be an extension of a private school. Their classes are usually taught by certified teachers and tend to be more expensive than co-ops, but require minimal parental involvement.
The following Cottage Schools are arranged in alphabetical order:
Christian Educational Consortium
The Christian Educational Consortium provides a blended education for older home schooled students, grades 6-12, giving them an opportunity to attend traditional academic classes in a Christian setting. Established for families who value Christian character and collegiate style academics, CEC helps to prepare young adults to glorify God through their lives. The Consortium meets on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Indiana Wesleyan University - Louisville Education Center 1500 Alliant Avenue, Louisville, Ky 40299.
Fees: Consortium Fee: $225 per student Registration Fee: $50 per class Class Tuition: $390 per class
The word "education" is derived from the Latin root "educare" which means to feed and nourish. With this mindset as our focus, the teachers will incorporate hands-on, interactive, higher level thinking activities. All of the classes will encourage the students to question, contemplate, and create solutions.
Meeting Dates: Classes for kindergarten – 12th grade will meet on Fridays for a total of 30 weeks during the 2013-2014 school year at the beautiful and historic, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Campus (SBTS), 2825 Lexington Road, Louisville, Kentucky 40280.

Heart Academy Classes start on September 11, 2013, the Wednesday after Labor Day week. Do you need to fit in an additional class to complete credits?

If you want to meet the teachers and find out more information, join us for Heart Academy's Open House and Registration!

Class sizes are small, and all the teachers have years of experience with homeschoolers. We try to make learning fun and hands on, while enriching and enhancing your home school teachings. Classes are geared toward a range of ages, rather than specific grades, so you can decide where you think your student would fit in best, based on maturity and learning level. We offer classes for students from Kindergarten up to 12th grade. Classes are on Wednesdays, with the earliest classes beginning at 10:00 AM and the latest ending at 2:30.

At Jubilee Academy, I plan to provide your child with an individualized education, while giving him/her the opportunity to collaborate with other students. It is important to me that students learn the basics of reading, writing, and math, but I also want to dig deeper.

Lucent Dreams Academy
Lucent Dreams Academy is your educational answer if: Your child is interested in subjects not traditionally taught in school. Your child is often bored or learns differently than those in traditional schooling. You thought about homeschooling, but never thought you could do that. Your child is often bullied for being different.
For over 25 years, we have been successfully helping children and their parents chart a revolutionary educational course by trying a 'new' way to learn that is based on the 'oldest' methods. More than anything else they learn it is their responsibility to leave the world a better place than they found it.
