Mission & Vision


The Mission of Synergy Academies is to create and share solutions that eliminate the achievement gap. Synergy creates and shares solutions through the operation of urban public charter schools in South Los Angeles that implement a holistic approach to education, believe in collective accountability, and share best practices through professional collaboration.


Our Vision is to create model STEM schools that will empower students to be the next generation of problem solvers.


Synergy Kinetic Academy middle school opened in 2008 with 90 sixth grade students.  Now, Synergy Kinetic Academy shares the Dr. Julian Nava Learning Academy campus with two LAUSD middle schools and serves over 470 students per year in grades 6-8.

Every year, over 70% of the incoming middle school students are brand new to a Synergy school.  As a result, initial baseline assessments show that most students arrive at the school performing far below grade level in reading and math.  Despite this challenge, Synergy Kinetic Academy is proving to be a turnaround specialist by posting a 2013 Academic Performance Index (API) score of 784, a score that exceeded the API of all neighborhood 6-8th grade middle schools.
