The San Luis Obispo Classical Academy opened its doors back in 2005 as a one-room schoolhouse in a neighborhood garage. Since these humble beginnings, the school has spent the last fifteen years developing and honing its novel approach to education – classical (with a twist). As word has spread, people have been getting excited about SLOCA, and now, after years of receiving inquiries from people across the nation asking us to share our roots, wisdom, and ways of doing school, we have taken the step to break out beyond the classroom walls and share what we are doing with the world. The curriculum used in our San Luis Obispo classrooms is being repackaged and made available to teachers and parents everywhere through the Wisdom Wonder Project– a project and community seeking to make the power, mystery, and magic of learning accessible to our modern world.
The Wisdom Wonder Project is a curriculum-based subscription service that offers monthly units in a variety of subjects for homeschooling families, classroom educators, and others looking to enrich their child(ren)’s education. Our units are designed to ignite curiosity, develop a lifelong passion for learning, and deepen relationships between the child(ren) and educator.
Units are digitally downloaded and can be implemented at home, in the classroom, or on the road. Lessons are easy to follow and easy to fall in love with. Spend more time teaching and less time prepping!
