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.

The Years are Short

The trimester is coming to a close in a couple of weeks and deadlines are looming–home projects, progress reports, history day, etc.  In the midst of paper mache, work samples, clay, whatever the medium in your house, it can feel overwhelming.  Remember we are striving for excellence and not perfection.  As Susie Theule so eloquently stated in last week’s update, sometimes we “must remember the importance of the good-enough parenting concept, or as Mother Theresa suggests, love not extraordinarily, but ‘without getting tired.'”

Take a few moments to watch this video and remember that the years are indeed short. Happy Monday.
