Financial Aid

Synergy School is committed to ensuring that we are accessible to a wide range of families representing broad cultural and socio-economic diversity. At least a third of our families receive assistance ranging from 5% to 90% of tuition. Aid applications are considered separately from the admissions process and all financial information submitted is kept confidential. Aid awards are based on demonstrated need, our commitment to diversity, and the availability of budgeted funds.


Applications are accepted online through the Independent School Management Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) Program. FAST provides objective, third party financial needs assessment to Synergy School’s Financial Aid Committee. All information provided to FAST and committee discussions are kept confidential.

Note: The online application system will open November 1.

Application Deadline: Friday, January 5, 2018

Federal and State Tax Returns Due: February 28, 2018

We urge you to file your 2017 federal and state tax returns early and submit them to FAST, along with supporting documents such as a W-2, Schedule A, and 1099 form. All aid awards are tentative until receipt and review of your completed returns.

If you need more information or have limited online access, please contact Cynthia Louie via email or call 415 579-0013. We are here to help.
