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 Valentine’s Day! 

We haven’t mentioned our character trait of the month yet, so let’s introduce it now – Resilience:

The ability to recover strength, determination, spirit, flexibility and good humor in the face of change, mistakes and trials.

The 2014 Winter Olympics are underway, and if you have been watching any of the events with your kids, it’s easy to spot fine examples of resilience in these amazing athletes, knowing the countless hours of practice they have put in to make it to the games. To get where they are today, each competitor has endured many failures as well as successes… resilience is essential!

Perhaps you’ve seen this commercial on tv or going around the internet – it's a touching and powerful display of resilience:

Have a wonderful day and weekend, celebrating those you love! Remember there are no classes next Monday and Tuesday (February 17th and 18th), so spend the time catching up or enjoying E&E activities.
