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.

What We’re Reading

photo by Joy Newman

Did you know that we are a community who reads?  Our reading extends beyond what is assigned for history and literature on the grid.  Our school board, leadership team and our teachers as a group are reading as well.  Isn’t it encouraging to see the life-long pursuit of learning includes everyone?

The teachers, as a group, are reading either The Core by Leigh Bortins or The Great Conversation by Robert Hutchins.

The leadership team is reading  The Five Most Important Questions You Will Ever Ask About Your Organization by Peter F. Drucker.

The school board is currently reading Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes.  This past year they also finished and discussed Machiavelli’s The Prince and Dante’s Inferno.   

The new dads reading group is reading and will be discussing Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman.

What are you reading?  Pick one of these, or choose something else, but hop on board and join the great conversation.  

It’s Friday! Don’t forget to be free by five, turn off your electronics and find something special to do as a family.  There are many events in our county this weekend.  Explore the Oceano Lagoon or Black Hill Trail.  Sunday, there is the Book and Author Festival in the Mission Plaza and free concerts in the Village of Arroyo Grande and in Grover Beach. Maybe pack a picnic, bring a book and enjoy the music. Whatever you do, may you relax and refresh this weekend!
