Episode Information

"No Place Like Homeschool" is the seventh episode of the third season and one-hundred-eighth episode of The Loud House.


Thinking it looks like fun, the other kids try to get in on Lola's home-schooling.


Lori reminds her siblings that they need to get ready for school. As the siblings wait for Luna to finish up showering, Lola is shown to be the only one not getting ready. It turns out that Lola is being home-schooled since it's pageant season, and that she needs more time to practice. The siblings are complaining about the fact that they have busy schedules as well, yet they still have to go to regular school. Lincoln, in the form of a presentation, is seeking permission from Rita and Lynn Sr. if they can be home-schooled. They agree, but on one condition: they need to get their work done, or else they'll be forced to go back to regular school.

Homeschool Louds.

Now that they're home-schooled, the siblings are free to do whatever they want all day. However, Lola keeps reminding her siblings that they need to work on their assignments soon. The siblings attempt to get some work done, but they can't get through the first page of their workbook without getting distracted. At night, the siblings are getting themselves ready for bed. Suddenly, Lola reveals that there's going to be a test tomorrow, stating that when someone is home-schooled, they're required to take a test every Friday to make sure they studied. To make matters worse, Lola warns them that if they fail, they're forced to go back to regular school.

In Lori and Leni's room, the siblings are panicking, since they made no effort in studying. Lisa's initially not worried, but to her discovery, her test will involve an arts and crafts project, which she is not good at (due to stubby fingers). Lincoln insists that they pull an all-nighter to study, and everyone proposes to do it in Lisa's underground bunker. Upon entering, the siblings are irritated at the distractions they cause. Realizing that studying by themselves isn't the best solution, Lincoln insists that they ask Lola for help, despite the fact that she needs eight hours of sleep, or else she won't function. Despite that, they decide to ask Lola for help, and Lola reluctantly agrees. The next day, the siblings take their tests, and they all end up passing, except for Lola, whose lack of sleep resulted in her leaving her test unfinished. As a result, Lola is forced to go back to regular school the upcoming Monday. This leaves the remaining siblings feeling bad for Lola.

Home-school is only for those that need it most.

On Monday, as Lola gets up to get ready for school, the remaining siblings are shown to be waiting in line for the bathroom. Lola is confused as to why her siblings are up so early, and they explain that they're going back to regular school because they admit that they were responsible for her failing her test, and are going back just so they won't interfere anymore. They also told their parents what happened, and they agreed to give her a second chance. Happy with their sacrifice, Lola hugs them, when suddenly, the siblings hear a school bus outside. Quickly rushing outside, the siblings discover that Mr. Grouse bought another CD, this time with vintage school bus sounds, much to their annoyance.

The episode's released script.

  • This episode was confirmed on an Instagram post by Jessica DiCicco during the middle of Season 2.
    • In addition, this was the first episode of Season 3 to be confirmed. This was due to the show still being on its second season when this episode was confirmed.
  • This episode is omitted from Nickelodeon On-Demand on DirecTV for unknown reasons.
  • The story of the episode is similar to that of "Yes Man". In both episodes Lincoln uses his skills to convince his parents to let give his sister benefits. Lincoln and Lola seem to be most prepared, so their siblings ask for advice. The advices work for them, ironically both Lola and Lincoln fail in their episodes. Also in the end the siblings make up with them for causing them to fail.
  • This episode reveals that Lola is homeschooled during pageant season.
  • Each of the books on the title card corresponds to one of the Loud kids, because of their theme colors. From top to bottom, light blue is Lori, purple is Luna, red is Lynn, yellow is Luan, and orange is Lincoln.
    • Leni is Lincoln's only older sister to not have a color-themed book.

@RoyalLouds Actually No Place Like Homeschool had a multi-arm rat in it. The set up was somebody saying "Guess who has 18 thumbs and is Homeschooled?" Lisa assumed they meant her lab rat. It was in the storyboards anyway, I assume they cut it for time.

  • According to former Nickelodeon intern Dylan Carbonell, there was a scene that involved a multi-armed rat squirming on Leni's head. The set up was somebody saying "Guess who has 18 thumbs and is Homeschooled?", and Lisa assumed they meant her lab rat. The scene was most likely removed due to time constraints.
    • The fact that Leni was freaking out seems to be a callback to "A Tattler's Tale", where she was also shown to be murophobic.

Here's a deleted scene from the episode, "No Place Like Homeschool".
Mar 14, 2019[2]
  • There was a deleted scene where Luna trips on Leni's cosmetics basket after leaving the bathroom, and slams face-first on the floor.
  • When Lola said she needed to go to ribbon dancing rehearsals, the license plate on the Princess Car can be seen. It reads "CYA", which is an abbreviation of the phrase "see ya."
  • This is the second episode where Lisa's underground bunker makes an appearance, with the first being "April Fools Rules". Although, it was mentioned in "No Such Luck".
    • This also marks the first time that the inside of the bunker is seen.
  • One of the questions in the quiz booklet is "Darin Mc(Blank)", and one of the answer choices was "Gowan". This is a reference to one of the series' storyboard artist, Darin McGowan.
  • According to Lisa in this episode, she's not skilled at arts and crafts, due to stubby fingers. She even refers to it as her "Achilles' heel".
  • Irony: Lola was the one sibling warning the siblings about how homeschool worked, but Rita announced that Lola is the only student who will not be homeschooled on Monday.
    • To go the opposite direction, Lola ended up as the only one to be homeschooled that day.
  • Ways the siblings goofed off:
    • Lincoln - Playing with his action figures.
    • Lori and Luan - Eating breakfast late.
    • Leni - Pushing Lily on the swing.
    • Luna - Hanging out in the kitchen.
    • Lynn - Jumping rope.
    • Lucy - Hanging upside down on the fence.
    • Lana - Playing with a praying mantis.
    • Lisa - Reading a college math book.
    • Lily - Playing on the swing.
  • Ways the siblings distracted each other in the bunker:
    • Lori - Wearing perfume.
    • Leni - Clicking her tongue.
    • Luna - Tapping her foot.
    • Lynn - Her stomach growling.
    • Lucy - Chewing on her pen.
    • Lana - Her hat smelling bad.
      • The only siblings who didn't distract someone were Luan, Lincoln, Lola (because she wasn't there), Lisa, and Lily.


  • No Place Like Homeschool - The title of this episode references a quote from The Wizard of Oz, "There's no place like home."
  • Mannish Boy - At the beginning of the episode, the music sounds pretty much exactly as Muddy Waters' song.
  • Row - One of the songs on Mr. Grouse's ice cream jingle CD is this classic children's song.
  • Achilles' heel - According to Lisa, arts and crafts is her "Achilles' heel", a metaphor indicating a sign of weakness/vulnerability. It comes from the Greek Myth of Achilles, who could only be hurt in one heel due to his mother dipping every part of his body in the River Styx except for said heel.


  • In some scenes, Leni is missing her right eyelashes when her eyes are open while she's wearing her night attire.
  • When the Loud siblings look out the window, a red sleeve appears to cover Lynn’s arm, even though the sleeves of her pajamas are quite different, being short and having a base color of white.

Did anyone notice the long purple sleeves?

  • When the sisters push Lincoln into Lola's room, the sleeves of Luna's nightshirt are long, even though they're usually short.
  • When Lola learns that she has been given a second chance at being homeschooled, she's wearing her pink gloves. But when she engages in a group hug, she's not wearing them anymore.
  • Lola was sleep-deprived from missing out on several hours of sleep, but her siblings didn't sleep at all that night and they didn't become sleep-deprived.
  • In the Turkish dub, Lincoln's line "Oh no! We're late!" was said with Clyde's voice from "Teachers' Union" and "Head Poet's Anxiety".
  • After Lola's siblings hear how homeschool works is written on page two on their workbooks, the lower part of Lynn's hair is missing.
  • In the scenes where Luan wears her night attire, the cuffs around her arms, legs and neck are yellow instead of white.
