San Luis Obispo Classical Academy San Luis Obispo Classical Academy

The mission of the Foundation Circle is to develop and fortify the resources for the school, while simultaneously increasing credibility both internally and externally by connecting with others in the community.

The Foundation Circle is a group of philanthropists who support SLOCA by being both ambassadors of our school and also by making a financial contribution. ¬†Together their donations make an enormous impact upon the work we are able to accomplish each year. The Foundation Circle votes each year on how they’d like their funds to be dispersed.

Last year, the Foundation Circle donated over $160,000 for the 2022-23 school year. These funds went straight toward making space for additional students, expanding Tiny/Little Wonders’ capacity by moving them to our tiny houses, lower campus upgrades, and staff scholarships.
