Application Process

 Synergy students choose to be a part of the school based on a variety of factors. The typical process can be viewed below:


Synergy Referral Process

  1. High School prioritizes students (16 and in 10th, 11th, or 12th grade) who might benefit from Synergy Alternative High School.
  2. Weekly, Jean Riley, Synergy Guidance Specialist, will hold office hours on Thursdays at 1:30 (11:30 on half days). Michelle Marion will attend office hours as well (unless she has a prior commitment).
  3. Students who are interested in Synergy will complete an application with Jean Riley and, if offered a slot, will receive an acceptance letter.
  4. Students will have a specific window to contact the school (two days). If they fail to do so, Jean and Michelle will facilitate a new student being offered a slot.
  5. If necessary, an appointment for a Synergy site visit will be set up by Jean Riley (ALL special education students/504 students will need to attend a meeting at Synergy before transition).
  6. Weekly, Jean will send an active list that includes the following: date students are transferring to Synergy, students who desire to transfer to Synergy, students who met with Jean/Michelle and students who are still deciding.

In general, students will transfer on the second day of the new quarter or two days after a Synergy  site visit meeting. Below are the transfer dates for 2016-17:

       04/03/17 (Only seniors in danger of failing to meet graduation requirements) 
       06/09/17 (Summer school preference given to students attending Synergy in the Fall of 2017)
