Tuition Assistance

Synergy School is committed to ensuring that we are accessible to a wide range of families representing broad cultural and socioeconomic diversity. We strongly encourage you to apply for assistance if you believe tuition is beyond your reach. 

All applications are considered separately from the admissions process and all financial information submitted is kept confidential. Tuition assistance is based on demonstrated need, our commitment to diversity, and our budget.

At least a third of our families receive assistance that can range from 10% to 97% of tuition.
