A Synapse Information Session is a required first step in the admissions process. These sessions are designed to guide you in deciding whether the Synapse School philosophy and program are a fit for your child and family. During this presentation, Synapse leadership and faculty and a current parent will share our Vision and Mission, and provide both general information and curricular examples of the Synapse program. This event is intended only for adults as applicants will have a student-centered opportunity to learn more about Synapse. See all scheduled Admissions events here.
