SLO Classical Academy is fantastic!! We love the educational style, the amazing teachers, wonderful and dedicated staff, and stimulating classrooms. I love knowing what my children are learning about at school, but more than that, I have the privilege of participating in that learning with then. I can incorporate the passion for learning and discovery into our daily lives, making it part of who we are, and we cherish the family time!

SLOCA’s community of families is so special.  It amazes me to work alongside of families who value not just their own, but our children.  One example that is recent is when my painfully shy son, Ryan, gave an oral presentation in class.  Mrs. Milligan sent out an email for the families to ask their own kids about how surprising it was that Ryan blew them away.  I got an email from another parent saying they were so happy for my son they shed a tear of joy.  That’s community!  Supporting in other’s struggles and rejoicing in others’ success!

We’re so grateful for SLOCA.  We knew we wanted to play a role in our children’s education, and here, we are partners with wonderful, committed teachers who really know our kids.  We love the balance of home/school, and our children are not only thriving here, but they are loving it!

We love the small class sizes, the focus on character development which is evident to us and our daughter, who tells us how polite and kind all the students in school are, the highly qualified teachers SLOCA has, curriculum is the best we have seen anywhere, and the flexible hybrid home schooling portion allows our family to be together so much more than in the past.

Our family loves SLO Classical Academy for its small classroom size, wonderful teachers and staff, rich literature and fabulous parental support.  They are very dedicated to the individual student and family as a whole.

I never understood the power of education taking place within the family.  I never knew that the world of home schooling and private school could mix to create such a powerful tool for a child’s education.  My daughter hated school, the light in her eye had faded.  I will be forever grateful to SLOCA for bringing us closer as a family and to turn on the desire to learn in my sweet daughter.

Rian and the girls have literally embarked on a learning journey...that has far exceeded our expectations.  Like any worthwhile endeavor, it's very challenging with the rewards commensurate with the investment of time and energy.  Frankly, we've considered a move...to facilitate the growth of my business, but have decided to stay in the area because we haven't found a similar school program nor an educational experience of equal quality without paying a king's ransom.  And with the severe budget cuts, the disparity between public and private education will only increase.

I am so grateful to the SLOCA community for providing such a unique education for my girls.  I have many friends who's children are going around and around on a tightly scheduled  wheel.  School all day, sports, dance, piano, play dates, homework.  It is crazy how planned and predictable their weeks are.  There is no spontaneity, no time to just sit and watch a line of ants walk by!  

 

 I often feel judged when I tell people I choose to homeschool my girls.  I also know that they too feel judged by me when I tell them I homeschool my girls.  It is a cycle that drives me nuts sometimes!  Then I remember why I am doing this.  I tell myself that my daughters will have a unique perspective on life.  They will know that doing things "differently" is ok, that not following the crowd is a good thing and can be done!  I love that. I don't want to spoon feed my children my beliefs and opinions.  I want them to have knowledge at their fingertips.  A wide variety of knowledge that they can discern and analyze critically.  SLOCA is giving them the skills to be able to do this well.   I don't care what my girls choose to do with their lives.  I just care that they are happy, balanced, and well educated. Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity!
