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.

The ABCs of Summer: S

Today, S is for School Supplies, and we are putting the spotlight on a local resource that some of our families might not know about: B Wise School Supply in Arroyo Grande.

Grand Ave. in Arroyo Grande, and their website is

B Wise has graciously offered SLOCA families a coupon for $5 off a purchase of $25 or more. (Just click on the coupon below or here for a pdf version.) This offer doesn’t expire, and I encourage you to use it!

And of course, S is also for School Store! Don’t forget that all of our core curriculum books can be conveniently purchased in our very own bookstore on campus, which is now open every Tuesday from 10am-1pm (except for this week it’s Thursday instead of Tuesday), as well as August 21-24 from 10am-1pm.
