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.

Memorial Day & Flag Day

Dear Down Home readers! We apologize for the delay on this post, our domain had some issues over the weekend and we are only able to post this today. We hope that you are able to take this Tuesday to look over these resources with your family.

Happy Monday, everyone! And Happy Memorial Day weekend! Today we have some resources on two important holidays – Memorial Day and Flag Day. If you are a currently enrolled family, don’t forget our resources in our Parent Portal that have lots of resources on these two important holidays.
