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.

Summer 2014: Getting Out and About


It may be mid-August, but summer isn't over yet! Even if you haven't taken a big vacation this year, there are plenty of opportunities for family fun right here on the Central Coast. Besides the amazing hiking, biking, and beaches that we have available to us year-round, here are just a few additional ideas to get you started in your quest for fun local outings the whole family can enjoy:

  • Ride the bus and have a picnic – check out the bus schedule in your hometown and plan an adventure! A bus ride, a picnic basket, maybe a soccer ball or frisbee… it doesn’t take much to make some memories. 
  • Eat WAY out – get the kids involved in choosing an exotic cuisine that you haven’t tried yet (or at least that the kids haven’t tried), and that you can find here on the central coast. Look up the country on a map or google it, then go to a restaurant to experience a meal there! 


  • Take a trip to the Lompoc Aquatic Center – It’s not The Ravine, but this indoor pool and water play area is a blast, great for younger kids, and their rec swim is only a few dollars per person. It's a bit of a trek to drive down to Lompoc, but something out of the ordinary. Click here for more info.


There’s also a mobile app called “SLO Events” that is very handy and lists events by week or category. It’s a nice one to have when you’re in the mood to get out and enjoy our community!

One last suggestion: come to our Family Reading Group this Friday, August to discuss The Hobbit with teacher Nick Stavros and other SLOCA families!
