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.

Happy Friday! And happy it is, especially since we get to enjoy a long weekend – Monday and Tuesday there will be no school on campus as we honor President’s Day. So rest, relax, or have an adventure, but unplug from electronics for a little while, taking pleasure in the extra time with family and friends. 

A few local events to highlight for the weekend:

Kid’s Garden Candy (making candy with simple garden ingredients): Saturday, February 16th from 1-3 PM at the SLO Botanical Garden

Lopez Lake Kids Free Fishing Clinic: Saturday, February 16th from 9-11 AM at the Lopez Lake Nature Center, near the Marina
