Applying to Synapse School

Deciding on the right school for your child is a major decision. At Synapse, we have always made every effort to share our mission, vision, and curriculum during the pre-enrollment process. During these challenging times we will continue to do so through virtual information sessions, tours, interviews and visits. 

We offer a unique program of project-based and social-emotional learning, innovation and leading-edge academics. Partnering with parents is fundamental to who we are so we really want you to feel confident that you understand us and that we are the best fit for your family. We are proud of the incredible parent involvement and support within our community!

We will be accepting applications for Lower School (Kindergarten - 4th grade) and Middle School (5th - 8th grade) for the 2021-2022 school year beginning mid-September. Our age guideline for Kindergarten entry is that children turn five years old by September 1, 2021. 

Our admissions process is outlined below. Please email or call (650) 468-2204 if you have questions or need more information.
