Applying to Synapse School

Given that we offer a unique program, integrating academics with social-emotional learning and the practice of innovation, we want the families who join our community to be fully informed and eager to participate. Deciding on a independent school program is a major family decision. Thus, we make every effort to share our mission, vision, and curriculum in the pre-enrollment process to make sure we are the best fit for your family.
We are now accepting applications for Lower School (Kindergarten - 4th grade) and Middle School (5th - 8th grade) for the 2020-2021 school year. Our age guideline for Kindergarten entry is that children are five years old by September 1, 2020. Please email Admissions or call (650) 468-2204 for more information about the application process.
