Our Purpose

We're up to big things at SLO Classical Academy! You'll find us off the beaten path, providing classical education and enrichment (with a twist). We exist to educate for life, understanding that education is not a means to an end, but a worthy end in and of itself.

Is SLOCA the Right Fit for You?

Here at SLOCA, we are a community that is committed to forging character, fostering wisdom, and nurturing a lifelong passion for learning.  If you believe wholeheartedly in this mission and are able to fully enjoy and appreciate what makes us unique, we may just be the perfect match!  Get to know us by perusing our values below (along with the rest of our website).

What We Look For & Expect

Our organizational values** lay out the traits that are central to our success in both thriving and standing out in the larger community.  These same attributes are those that allow employees to best fit and thrive in our community as well. They are qualities and behaviors that we all must seek to incorporate, grow in, and exude.

permission to play Values

The bottom line is, you’ve got to have these firmly in place if you’re going to work at SLOCA!






core Values

Core Values represent behaviors that are inherent to SLOCA and come naturally to us as a community.  They’re just part of who we are!


All in

dedicated for the long-haul

Always mindful

focused and thoughtful

Always learning

individually and corporately, SLOCA is, if nothing else, a learning community focused on educating for life


SLOCA is off the beaten educational path—following a dynamic road-less-traveled and becoming increasingly counter-cultural. We pride ourselves in our approach and philosophy, our creativity, and our commitment to making a stand for what it takes to educate for life.

aspirational Values

Aspirational values are those values and behaviors we see as important to our success; however, because they may not come so naturally to us, we are aspiring to more mindfully work towards them.  We are, after all, always learning!

All for one, One for all

We see all SLOCA stakeholders as one TEAM

Make Merry

The business of educating for life is rigorous and serious, which therefore makes it all the more important to balance it with playfulness and celebration.


SLOCA strives to be on top of its game in terms of all it does.


Although we strive for "on-top-of-it-ness," our "down-to-earth-ness" balances that out as we seek to be approachable, warm, comfortable, and welcoming.

This is just a taste of what we have to say about the things that are important to us as an organization.  If you’re interested in finding out more, we’d love to hear from you! Check out the job openings we have listed below or drop us a line to tell us why you want to work at SLOCA and how the above values resonate with you.

We look forward to hearing from you!

**The framework for these organizational values (hierarchy of “Permission to Play”, “Core”, and “Aspirational” values) was inspired and guided by the work of Patrick Lencioni, in his book, The Advantage.
