Classical Education with a twist

Make Every Minute Matter

SLO Classical Academy began in 2005 on the wings of a dream…a dream that every minute our children spent in class would matter.  A dream that those hours spent at school would be filled with meaning and value, and that the natural passion for learning would be ignited more powerfully over time.  We had the dream that our kids would learn to think for themselves, that they would be far more prepared for life than we were, and that their schooling would reach their hearts, minds, and very souls.  With the help of amazing parents and staff with a similar dream, SLO Classical Academy is celebrating more than 13 years––of a dream come true.

Our Magical formula

At the heart of what makes SLOCA work is classical education. Stemming from an ancient approach to learning, it guides our decisions and inspires our every educational move. To fully understand SLOCA, you must also explore classical education.

family involvement

Our hybrid model of classroom + home points to our belief that family is of utmost importance in children's lives, even in their educational lives. Children thrive best when their parents are actively engaged in their academics, and at SLOCA family is woven into all we do.
