Financial Aid

Synergy School is committed to ensuring that we are accessible to a wide range of families representing broad cultural and socioeconomic diversity. At least a third of our families receive assistance that can range from 10% to 97% of tuition. Aid applications are considered separately from the admissions process and all financial information submitted to FAST and the Financial Aid Committee is kept confidential. Financial aid grants are based on demonstrated need, our commitment to diversity, and the availability of budgeted funds.
