Alene (SEED LA ’26) chose SEED for the STEM curriculum and the ability to compete in today’s job market. “I came across SEED LA through a social media advertisement. I immediately told my mom about SEED and how it was a new high school in our community with a college prep boarding environment and a STEM focus. The STEM curriculum is important to me because I think it will give me access to more career options in the future.” Help us continue to support students like Alene and Choose SEED this https://givebutter.com/Chooseseed

Myiah Smith (SEED DC ’16, Georgetown University ’20, Johns Hopkins University ’22) chose SEED because of the breadth of programming offered in and out of the classroom. “In 2009, I joined the SEED DC community as a 6th-grader. It reminded me of sleepaway camp; It was more than just a boarding school! From academics to field trips, STEAM, and sports, SEED did a great job curating academic and extracurricular activities—recognizing that each student has different interests.” Help us continue to support students like Myiah and Choose SEED this https://givebutter.com/Chooseseed

Brandon Julot (SEED MD ’16, Goucher College ’20) chose SEED because he wanted to immerse himself in a different atmosphere. “I was excited about being in a new environment. I didn’t want to go to a school in my neighborhood; I felt they wouldn’t help me reach my goals. SEED offered the college prep aspect, and I knew I wanted to go to college.” Help us continue to support students like Brandon and Choose SEED this https://givebutter.com/Chooseseed

is next week! Will you choose SEED and a make a gift? This year, we have received a generous challenge grant: If we raise $10,000, we will receive a matching gift of $10,000 for a total of $20,000!

For 25 years, SEED has offered families the choice of a public college-prep boarding school. This choice provides students with a pathway to college degree attainment and fulfilled dreams and aspirations. It provides families with a partner in their child’s educational journeys. And it provides generations of an under resourced population with a lever to obtain economic freedom.

We hope you will choose SEED this .
