Sycamore Creek Charter School

$11,745 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 35 months


Hello, I am currently a stay at home parent and was previously an educator. As my son grows and gets closer to entering public school I worry about the ability of the local schools to meet his needs while still sending him home inspired rather than burned out. I want so badly for him to gain a long-term love for learning as well as access to enriching activities that will help him to become a well rounded individual. 

I'm working on a team that is earnestly invested in starting a new charter school in North Orange County. This school will be public and inclusive. We want to provide access to a curriculum that is guided by the core principles of Public Waldorf Education to our area. Other schools like this have found success, as we are confident ours will. 

Our team leader is prepared to submit our charter's  draft to a specializing attorney and secure "back of house" representation (basically the folks who help with the finances, our non-profit status, employment details, etc.). We are incurring these costs personally.  As we firm up details and get closer to our dream the money is beginning to roll out. Once our charter is approved we will be eligible to receive state and federal funds to get the school going. We are also working on securing grants. 

I'm am so positive about this venture that I am putting up funds to get it off the ground, as are other team members and interested parents in our area. But we will need more. I'm passionate and committed to this project. I know it will help many children who may otherwise not fit perfectly into the mold set for them in the current public classroom setting  to receive a wonderfully fulfilling and inspiring education.

Let's stand together to request a public Waldorf option that is tuition-free in Northern Orange County. How many of us are on wait lists or unable to drive to far away schools, or unable to afford the high cost of tuition? This is our opportunity to bring something so important, so necessary, so desired for so many. Add your name to the chorus, and come wearing green in solidarity. A few hours out of your day could have an impact as to whether or not the school is authorized. If you want this option for your family then make sure and attend February 22nd at 10:15am. Orange County Department of Education, 200 Kalmus Dr, Costa Mesa, CA 92626. See you there.

Dear SCCCS Supporters:

Please consider making a year-end donation to Sycamore Creek Community Charter School. We are a non-profit and your donation is 100% tax deductible. Our curriculum is guided by the Core Principles of Public Waldorf Education, focusing on the healthy growth of the whole child throughout each stage of development. SCCCS is the only initiative of its kind in North Orange County and is open to all residents of California.

Unfortunately, Ocean View School District denied our first initiative to open SCCCS. Regardless, we are prepared and determined to move forward. Our advocates, CCSA, and supporters are ready to stand with us as we move through the appeal process with the Orange County School Board. We ask that you support us in any way you can.

You can support us in the following ways:
*Financial Donations here through gofundme.
*Attend county board meetings during our appeal process, details to come.
*Share our initiative with anyone who would be interested in supporting SCCCS.
Your year-end donation will greatly help us with the start up costs of Sycamore Creek and the legal fees that will be required to get our school approved and open for the 2017/2018 school year. Every dollar helps and will be used efficiently and wisely.

Thank you so much for your support,


The Founders of SCCCS

Hello fellow SCCCS supporters! We have been continuing to make progress over the summer and have submitted our petition for approval. We are preparing for our Ocean View School Board public hearing on November 1st. Meanwhile we have continued our partnership with CCSA, and Alliance for Public Waldorf Education. As you can imagine a lot of leg work has gone into our endeavor. Our talented team of founders and volunteers has put in countless hours and we've also hired the premier California charter school specializing group of attorneys and back-of-house support.

If you are able to donate it would help to close the gap on some of the ongoing costs for these outside services. Also please share our story on any social media platforms you may use. And don't forget to check out our website for updates and additions: sycamorecreekcharter.org

Warmly, Amy Green-Bosinoff

Thank you so much to all of the recent contributions. They have been invaluable to move our collective initiative to bring an education that considers a holistic approach by recognizing the value in meeting the developing child where they are and the necessity to educate not only their intellect, but also their heart and hands. This is considered a "head, heart, and hands" education. We wanted to share with you our spring newsletter that went out in April and also invite you to sign up on our website at www.sycamorecreekcharter.org to receive future newsletters. http://eepurl.com/bVDOJH
