GIVE TO THE SYCAMORE FUND
The Sycamore Fund is the school’s highest fundraising priority. As with all independent schools, Sycamore relies on our community to give annually to help us fund projects and programs that make us the unique school we are. Your tax-deductible donation goes to work immediately, benefiting students in this school year. Your gift affects their daily experience and is a direct investment in:
Professional development for our talented and dedicated faculty
Sycamore School has been named a 2019 Top Workplace in Indianapolis by The Indianapolis Star. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party research partner. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection. “I’m very proud,” says Sycamore’s Diane Borgmann, who has served as Head of School since 2009. “The unanimous focus on our mission and its delivery unites our faculty and staff in every way, and we are passionate about what we do. Through this award, we’ll be able to share with others why we love our school and why Sycamore is a great place for both kids and teachers!”
There will always be students who need schools like Sycamore, to stimulate, educate, and motivate our best and brightest. We are educating kids, teaching them to think, both critically and creatively, and teaching them to love learning.
Today's students will be the leaders that will solve the problems of today and tomorrow. Sycamore is a prime example of institutional evolution and a story of response to a need. Our work will never be complete.
If Sycamore School is to be closed due to extreme weather conditions, announcements to parents will be sent to home and cell phones via the school’s automated alert system. Announcements will also be made on local TV and radio stations and their websites. Closings will also be posted on the Sycamore School social media (Facebook and Twitter) feeds. We will also post information on this page.
