Experiential Learning & External opportunities
SEED DC believes that each school year offers an opportunity for students to be involved, engaged, and stimulated by the world around them. Whether it is participating in an internship, studying abroad, playing sports at a summer camp, or engaging in a leadership program, students expand their horizons through off-campus enrichment activities. Beginning in middle school, students and families are strongly encouraged to apply for and participate in external opportunities.
In recent years, students have completed service projects in Africa through LearnServe Zambia, lived with families in Australia, Mexico, Scotland, Costa Rica, Japan and Spain through The Experiment in International Living, traveled throughout Greece through the Greek Classics Program at SEED, and explored Wyoming’s wilderness through the City Kids Wilderness Project.
SEED DC is committed to identifying challenging and exciting opportunities beyond SEED’s campus for any student that demonstrates academic excellence and has mastered SEED’s Core Values. Our long-term goal is for each SEED student to participate in an external opportunity that promotes The SEED School’s mission of college-preparedness.
For more information on these and other opportunities, contact Mrs. Lesli Thompson, 202-248-3030, email@example.com.
