Welcome to Down Home, San Luis Obispo Classical Academy’s blog! We are a classical school offering several options to make our education work for families with infants through high schoolers. Our signature hybrid program, which is part-time classroom and part-time home instruction, provides an engaging education for preschool through middle school (with full time options available). We also have 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.

“Created to be with Family”

Last week, our Associate Director, Troy Wathan shared with parents and community members why classical education is desirable.  Although a classical education is not new, our hybrid program at SLO Classical Academy is unique and others have taken notice of this model.  

While some education reformers are focusing on performance-based incentives and curriculum changes, others are trying to shift the very structure of schooling.

Students traditionally attend school from September to June, five days a week, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., with occasional holidays and shortened days. New “time-oriented” education takes many alternate forms, including homeschool co-ops, online learning, hybrids of different instruction types, and boarding schools. Some reduce lesson time, while some expand it.
