What Will My Child Learn in Synthesis?

In Synthesis, students learn how to become supercollaborators, the kind of people who can work together to solve our civilization’s most challenging problems.

Students become supercollaborators by practicing a number of critically important skills for life:

  • Communicating effectively
  • Solving problems
  • Collaborating with a team
  • Making sense of complexity
  • Testing assumptions
  • Adapting to fast-changing scenarios

To master these skills, Synthesis students work together with a team of peers to navigate simulations of complex problems, like running movie studios and colonizing space. They practice coming up with ideas, testing their hypotheses, organizing as a team, taking action, and pivoting their strategies as things change.

Synthesis helps students learn how to think, not what to think. Our teachers create an environment for kids to learn through self-driven discovery and reflection.
