Admissions Process



At Synapse, we really understand how important it is for you to find the right school for your child and the Admissions team is here to help every step of the way!

We offer a unique and comprehensive program of project-based curriculum integrating social-emotional learning, leading-edge academics and the practice of innovation to prepare students to make a positive and authentic impact in the world. 

The pandemic created an exciting challenge for us as we needed to innovate our admissions process from one that was entirely in person, to one that now has many steps which are virtual. We received positive feedback last year that we were able to communicate who we are in an authentic and engaging way through our virtual information sessions and online materials. 

During your admissions process, you will have an opportunity to hear from school leaders, teachers, and parents and we will have a chance to get to know your family and, most especially, your child. Partnering with parents is fundamental to who we are. We take the time to get to know you and for you to know us. We are proud of the incredible parent involvement and support within our community!

We are now accepting applications for Lower School (Kindergarten - 4th grade) and Middle School (5th - 8th grade) for the 2022-2023 school year.

Our age guideline for Kindergarten entry is that children turn five years old by September 1, 2022.

We are planning to open a Transitional Kindergarten (TK) in Fall 2022. Synapse’s TK is for children turning five years old between September 2, 2022 - February 2, 2023, as well as “Young Fives” children that may not be ready for Kindergarten just yet! However, we consider each child individually and would love to meet with you to discuss fit for your child. 

Our admissions process is outlined below. Feel free to reach out to the Admission team if you have questions.
