Students in grades nine through twelve undertake a traditional college-preparatory curriculum, including Advanced Placement courses, that introduces them to the course scheduling they will encounter in college. The SEED School offers a wide range of elective courses, such as entrepreneurship, service learning, and African American History, that build upon the core content courses and provide a more challenging and enriching learning experience in the subjects that interest students most. Please take a look at our scope and sequence of classes here.

Welcome To High School!

Welcome to The SEED School of Washington, D.C. website.  SEED is the first public boarding school in the country and we serve on or about 300 students.  Our small size is our strength as it allows us to foster a family friendly atmosphere where faculty get to know all of our scholars well.  Parent participation is welcomed and we offer many opportunities for parents and families to come and engage with the student’s learning. 

I am honored to serve as principal of The SEED School of Washington, D.C.  It is a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers, and students strive to “fly high” and build positive relationships in the best interests of students to support their academic and social emotional growth.

We are excited to announce five programs that will impact student achievement: Dual Enrollment, Peer Group Connection (PGC), APEX (Credit Recovery), Accelerate, Re-Teach, Enrich (ARE), and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math).  Additionally, we added five new classes to our Course Catalog for SY 2018-2019.  Our goal is to provide a positive, challenging, and supportive academic environment in order to guide students towards success and college readiness at the high school level. The rigorous standards will continue through middle and high school, and holding students accountable for their continued academic progress is crucial in their success. 

I would like to encourage you to make a special effort to join with our faculty & staff during school activities or partner with us as we seek to transform the lives of our scholars. “When a community achieves, we all achieve!”
