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.

Togas for History Day

We are in luck, people! Costumes for our upcoming History Day event are just about the easiest of our entire history cycle: togas! We are going with simple togas for everyone, so this should be a cinch, right? In fact, it barely warrants a blog post, but Down Home is here to offer a little guidance, should you want it. 

Toga tutorials abound on the internet. You can keep it basic, or accessorize to your heart’s content – here are a few videos that offer a simple guide to making a toga:

We look forward to seeing everyone decked out in their Roman togas on Friday, June 6th!
