Education + Learning


Louisville's strong educational offerings are built with collaboration and creativity. Our community is making education a priority at all levels from improving kindergarten readiness to the 55,000 Degrees program, which is an effort to increase education attainment by 55,000 postsecondary degrees by 2020.

Jefferson County Public Schools educates more than 100,000 children in its 172 schools, which includes magnets focused on performing arts and environmental sciences or Montessori and Waldorf models. We have strong parochial and private schools, as well. Local universities and colleges such as the University of Louisville, Bellarmine University, Jefferson Community and Technical College, Spalding University, Simmons College of Kentucky, Indiana University Southeast and Sullivan University round out the robust higher education landscape.
