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.

shifting gears

Its becoming more and more clear that becoming a Classical Academy Family involves far more than just choosing a school . . . it involves a shift of paradigm in terms of the way you “do family” and think about education. SLO Classical Academy is a lifestyle! This is true whether your coming from either direction . . . from a homeschooling paradigm or a public school paradigm. SLO Classical Academy is different altogether. We’re discovering that the families that whole-heartedly embrace this paradigm shift are the ones experiencing the most fun and satisfaction. Those who resist the change or simply can’t make the shift, have a much harder time and sometimes just don’t survive at SLO Classical Academy. All of this is important to consider as you evaluate if SLO Classical is a good fit for your family.

To get a better idea of what it means to shift your educational paradigm, take a listen to this fantastic lecture given last Fall at the Academy by Andrew Pudewa, entitled Rebuilding Your Educational Paradigm. Andrew is the founder of the acclaimed and nationally recognized Excellence in Writing program and who also just happens to live here on the Central Coast. Andrew serves on our Classical Advisory Board and has a child enrolled at SLO Classical Academy.
