A Deeper Focus


Enrollment open for Peace Academy summer programs

The Peace Academy of the Sciences and Arts is a non-profit educational program with the goal to inspire a community of lifelong learners who become caretakers and peace leaders
for our world.  Last summer, we provided an amazingly successful 4 week full-day enrichment program for over 40 children in SLO County.

This summer, we open our doors to serve 50% more students with a new and curriculum. New and returning children will embark on a 4-week learning journey, together, yet each in their own unique way, to become scientists, critical thinkers, authors, cooks, performers, coders, and problem solvers while having tons of fun! On the beautiful property of the Rancho El Chorro Outdoor School, with a flowing creek, waterfall, and wildlife, we’ve filled each session with Peace Academy traditions that embody our pillars of self-awareness, environmental stewardship, and global citizenship.  Children will examine nature through microscopes and gain perspective with comparisons to their views from atop the mountain trails.  To enroll your child go to peaceacademyslo.org 

Our program highlights:
• 8:1 student to teacher ratio
• Beautiful outdoor and indoor learning spaces
• Meal-prepping fun in a full kitchen
• Learn through creative play
• Values-based curriculum
• Focus on compassion and socio-emotional health
• New curriculum every summer, and so much more!

Also new this summer: The first annual Teen Leadership Summit to serve as platform for
teens to connect and collaborate on global issues. Attendees receive up to 20 hours of
community service credit for school and college applications. For one week, attendees will
examine the 30 human rights declared by the UN in 1948 and use evidence-based analysis
to assess the ways in which countries may violate and enforce these rights. Engaging in
intellectual conversations and advocacy, students will connect with local and national
