Welcome to The SEED PCS!

Welcome to The SEED School of Washington, D.C. website.  SEED DC is the nation’s first public charter, college-preparatory boarding school and we serve approximately 250 scholars.  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 scholar’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 scholars to support their academic and social emotional growth.

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!”

For my scholars,

 Dr. Quinhon N. Scott, Ed.D.

Middle School

The middle school program for students in grade eight focuses on core skills and fundamental building blocks. Each middle school student must meet a set of rigorous standards before advancing to the next grade. All of our middle school students participate in literacy or math based program as an intervention or acceleration of their skills.

High School

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.

We are excited to offer five programs that will impact student achievement:

  1. Dual Enrollment

  2. Peer Group Connection (PGC)

  3. APEX (Credit Recovery)

  4. Accelerate, Re-Teach, Enrich (ARE)

  5. STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math)

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.
