Our mission is to provide an outstanding, intensive educational program that prepares children, both academically and socially, for success in college and beyond.

Enriching Academics

Our college-preparatory environment challenges all students in small classroom settings and with individualized instruction rooted in our core values. Learn about our model here →


With our boarding program, we are not limited by the confines of a classroom. We encourage students to grow through their life experiences as well as their academic experiences. Learn More →

“With SEED, we are a whole village raising my
children. We are instilling in my kids that they’ve
never learned enough – there’s always more. SEED kids always have another goal for themselves.”
— Ms. Poulson, SEED DC parent (of three) and board member
