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 Independence Day!!!

There is a lot going on in our area today and we will list some of those events below. But first, we wanted to highlight one of the most important documents in American history – the Declaration of Independence. If you haven’t done it before, try reading it out loud as a family!
