Pray for Us

Faith is at the center of everything we do. Please consider us in your prayers using our official prayer:

A Prayer for the Camino Schools
Heavenly Father, you sent your Only Begotten Son into the world to be our Lord, Savior and Teacher. When his disciples tried to prevent mothers from bringing him their children, he rebuked them, saying let the children come to me. Now, may he look kindly upon us, prospective parents and students of The Camino Schools, as we humbly appeal to your kindness, mercy and generosity so that this enterprise may begin and flourish with your fatherly Providence and his guiding grace, under the loving eyes of Mary, his Mother and ours. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Become a Founding Family

The purpose of the Founding Families Program is to encourage families to participate more fully in the founding of The Camino Schools, through participation in planning updates and idea exchanges with the board of directors and planning committees. Founding Families will be asked to make a charitable donation or pledge of at least $1000 (which can be fulfilled by committing to a monthly donation that totals at least $1000 in one calendar year). Founding families will be invited to quarterly reception gatherings consisting of:

  • Updates on latest developments on potential site locations, campus designs, hiring, etc. 
  • Feedback, questions, and suggestions to the board of directors and planning committees
  • Recognition on The Camino Schools website, eventually a significant plaque on campus
  • First Founding Family Kick-Off Event in January 

Interested in becoming a Founding Family? Our Executive Director, Chris Weir, would love to speak with you about it in more detail. Feel free to contact him at your convenience at [email protected] or 949-438-1232 x701.

How Your Gift Helps

The master plan for the Camino Schools is based on a tuition + fundraising model that we believe, based on other models we have studied, will be sustainable long-term. In the short-term, however, we will need assistance with a financial runway that allows us to sustain our operating budget before reaching maximum capacity. 

On a larger scale, we will also be engaging in a capital campaign to build out a permanent campus that is commensurate with our long-term vision and educational philosophy. For that endeavor, we will need both technical expertise and counsel and significant financial support.
