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.

Got smarts? How about heart?

Many families feel one of SLO Classical Academy’s strengths to be our commitment as a community to fostering virtue and forging character.  The character education that naturally emerges from our history and literature studies helps us press on toward this goal.  It would be challenging to find someone who doesn’t believe character counts, but at times our societal values as a whole don’t seem to reflect this same belief.

A popular parenting magazine recently had a little boy on the cover dressed like Steve Jobs in a black turtleneck, wire rim glasses and his hand posed beneath his chin. Cute. Very cute. The cover story was on how to raise genius children.
