San Luis Obispo Classical Academy San Luis Obispo Classical Academy

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.

Sponsor Spotlight – #1

Happy Friday! Today we are highlighting some of the businesses from our community that have been supporting our school over many years. As a reminder:

“Every dollar of the money allocated for the sponsorship fund is earmarked for student development—preparing them for their role in our community.”

Grab a hot drink and learn more about today’s businesses, and better yet, express your gratitude to them when you see them around our community!

Your name and the name of your business:

Tell us about your business. What services does it provide?

  • Talley Farms: Our Talley Farms boxes are an easy way to eat healthy and feel good with fresh produce you can trust. Our subscription program is flexible, organized and offers a great selection in every box. Our produce boxes take out the middleman by delivering directly to you at convenient pick-up locations throughout the Central Coast….or directly to your home! We believe freshly picked produce makes the best meals for every member of your family. Recipes are included in every box.
  • Kevin Forsythe MD Inc.: Shoulder hip and knee surgery including arthroscopic repair work, joint replacement, and PRP injections.
  • Sport Clips Hair Salon: Haircuts for men and boys.

Briefly share how your business started?

  • Talley Farms: The Talley family has been farming produce in the Arroyo Grande Valley since 1948. For the last 70 years, we’ve been supplying fresh fruits and vegetables to our local area and all over the U.S. and Canada.
  • Kevin Forsythe MD Inc.: I did my training in Chicago and after five years in Northern California, we moved here to raise our family on the central coast and I hung up a shingle.
  • Sport Clips Hair Salon: Keshet and I bought the Sport Clips in SLO three years ago. We were involved in franchising and Sport Clips was a client for many years. We love the concept of a hair salon that caters to men and boys, so when the opportunity came up to buy this one, we took it.

Why have you chosen to sponsor SLOCA?

  • Talley Farms: We are huge fans of SLOCA and have been since the school started 15 years ago. As a longtime SLOCA family, we often tell people “we came for the incredible classical curriculum, but stayed for the SLOCA community.” We’ve been educating our 3 students at SLOCA since 2009 and are grateful to the school for the impact it’s had on our family as a whole and our student’s love for learning.
  • Kevin Forsythe MD Inc.: To help support our children’s education.
  • Sport Clips Hair Salon: We love SLOCA. Our kids attend SLOCA so we love supporting the school and community. We give SLOCA families a discount on haircuts, so they can check us out.

How do you set yourself apart from other similar businesses?

  • Talley Farms: At Talley Farms, we’re proud to have four generations of farming experience. We are a year-round program that offers a variety of in-season fruits and vegetables, organically grown when available, and on a delivery schedule that fits your needs.
  • Kevin Forsythe MD Inc.: I have a great deal of experience with arthroscopic procedures and am double board-certified in Orthopedic Surgery and Orthopedic Sports Medicine.
  • Sport Clips Hair Salon: We have our MVP treatment, which is the haircut, shampoo, hot steam towel, and neck and shoulder massage. I know a lot of guys don’t stop and relax very often. When I get my haircut, it’s one of the only times I stop and relax a bit!

Thank you to Talley Farms, Kevin Forsythe MD and Sport Clips for your continued support of our school! If you have a business that would like to support our school, please contact Debbie Lee for more information.
