Welcome to Down Home, San Luis Obispo Classical Academy’s blog! We are a classical school offering options to make education work for families. We have a full hybrid program for grades pre-12, which means part-time classroom and part-time home instruction with a 4 day option for middle school and a university model high school. This blog is meant to support and encourage on the home front because in so many ways, the heart of what happens at SLO Classical Academy happens down home.

Semper discentes – always learning together.

Happy Friday to all, and good news – it’s a long weekend!

Yes, Memorial Day brings an extra day off of work/school for many Americans, and often a BBQ or time with friends and family, but we also encourage you to take a moment this Memorial Day weekend to reflect on the meaning and sacrifice behind this national holiday.

SLOCA families, be sure to check out SLOCA’s Holiday Resource packet about Memorial Day – it’s full of background info, ways to celebrate, and books and movies that go along with this holiday. There’s a link to it in your weekly update!


We like to tell you about student performances coming up, but today we have one of our SLOCA teacher’s events to share! Mr. Guy Kinnear, our high school and middle school art instructor, has an upcoming art exhibition of his newest body of work – here’s all the info:
