The Synergy Culture
The Synergy Creed
At Synergy, we’re all in this together because together we are better.
We bring out the best in each other and in ourselves, every day in every way.
-- Written by Synergy Co-Founder Dr. Randy Palisoc

People often ask us, “What is the secret to your success?” The simplest answer to that question is a single word, which also happens to be the name of our organization – Synergy. The name “Synergy” captures the essence of our culture and drives everything we do. By working together synergistically and striving to live up to the name of our schools, we bring out the best in each other, and we help our students thrive both academically and socially.
We do our best to make sure that teachers, parents, and staff are all on the same page and communicate consistent expectations to students about hard work and personal responsibility. For example, the same school-level achievement data that parents receive during summer orientation is the same data that teachers receive during their summer training. Additionally, all teachers, regardless of grade level (elementary school, middle school, or high school), all learn about how to empower students to Build Literacy and Build Numeracy, which help students take command of challenging academic content at any grade level.
There is a great sense of collegiality amongst the Synergy Family as we work towards educational equity. Synergy Academies believes in working together and creating a sense of synergy in this way because the achievement gap is too big of a problem for any single party to solve on its own.
