What is SLOCA?

San Luis Obispo Classical Academy is an exciting educational alternative in the Central Coast area. It is distinguished by a classical education accomplished within the best of both in-school and at-home learning environments. Our mission is to assist parents in their goal of developing thoughtful and exemplary young men and women who possess analytical thinking skills, solid character, and a passion for learning, all built upon a strong foundation of knowledge.

It is our desire to unify the benefit of excellently trained teachers with stimulating classroom experiences, and the richness and flexibility of home schooling. Students will learn from trained, credentialed teachers 8-10 hours per week, which will provide both structure and professional education. Students will spend those same hours per week with other students, where the Socratic method of open discussion format will be employed. In conjunction with this in-class experience, students will also be provided with home education. This allows education to be more personally tailored to each student, it allows families great flexibility in scheduling, it allows greater flexibility in educational choices, and it allows students to receive valuable input from and training by their parent/s. Each family will be matched with one of the teachers for ongoing guidance and coaching to insure that the in-home piece of the child’s education is successful and that the parents feel supported.
