We could tell you that every Synthesis simulation is designed to be ultra exciting while cultivating critical skills.
We’d rather show you.
We’re not trying to get your child ahead in the current school system. We give them the skills and agency to create the future they want.
At Synthesis, kids learn how to think, not what to think.
Our real-world simulations are uniquely designed to ignite curiosity and fun.
In 2014, Elon Musk asked me to start an experimental school with him at SpaceX.
The goal was to develop students who are enthralled by complexity and solving for the unknown.
Synthesis is the most innovative learning experience from that school. It is designed to cultivate student voice, strategic thinking, and collaborative problem solving.
I believe Synthesis builds these skills like no other education experience.
Until recently, Synthesis was only available to a handful of SpaceX families. Today, our community is worldwide and growing quickly. Excited for you to be a part of it.
Not yet. We are starting with an extracurricular program. Minimum commitment is one hour per week.
The world's most valuable skill: how to solve complex problems with a team.
As long as you want. The skills your child builds in Synthesis continually strengthen as they progress through the program and reach higher and higher levels of achievement. To build the best foundation, we recommend staying in Synthesis for at least three months.
Our teachers are also engineers, astrophysicists, and artists—and because we aim to deliver an outstanding learning experience, we put a lot of effort into bringing in only the most qualified people. We currently accept 4-6% of teaching applicants.
