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.

Semper discentes—always learning together.

Our “Character and Code of Conduct Applications” defines diligence as “committing to doing tasks with excellence and persevering with determination and patience to complete tasks in spite of difficulties and discouragements.” Diligence requires time, commitment to excellence and never giving up.  In our modern society, instant gratification is the norm and a virtue such as diligence can easily be overlooked. 

This month, how can your family work on fostering diligence?  Perhaps you can pick a challenging and fun task to complete–like a large puzzle, or a model to build. Pick something that will take time to complete and commit to working on it.  Experience the frustrations and the joys that a longer project can present.  

What are some ways your family instills or practices diligence?  Leave a comment and be entered into a drawing.  Drawing closes next Monday.
