Welcome to The SEED School of Miami
South Florida’s communities, leaders, and families are committed to creating lifelong opportunities for every child. Together with SEED, they have identified a solution to better serve children who can achieve their highest potential in a holistic learning environment.
South Florida opened its first college-preparatory, public boarding school in August 2014. The SEED School of Miami will help prepare its students for college success, excel in 21st-century careers, and build bright futures for themselves and their families.
Introducing the Class of 2021!
On April 17, the first 60 seats of The SEED School of Miami Class of 2021 were filled via lottery. We'd like to thank every single student and family who took the time to apply to SEED Miami and learn more about our mission.
Over 100 applications were submitted, and 92 names were eligible for the lottery. There is a waiting list and applications are still being accepted should spots become available.
What is SEED?
SEED is more than a school—it is a comprehensive solution to the challenges some students face. In a 24-hour, college-prep boarding school environment, SEED integrates a rigorous academic program with a nurturing boarding program, as well as supports graduates through our College Transition & Success program. Our goal is for every student to be successful, both academically and socially, in college and beyond. More than 90 percent of all SEED graduates have enrolled in college and more than 80 percent of SEED graduates are first-generation college-bound.
Why SEED in South Florida?
One-fourth of students across the nation do not graduate from high school, and nearly 30 percent of students in Miami-Dade County live in poverty. SEED believes that some students, many of whom are affected by challenges such as poverty, need a 24-hour learning environment to achieve their highest potential. The SEED School of Miami provides South Florida students wraparound services, including healthy meals, academic services, character development, college counseling, and more.
How Can You Join Our Effort?
A campaign to raise funds for The SEED School of Miami has begun. This campaign is raising critical funds in support of the public/private partnership that will guarantee long-term sustainability for the school.
With your help, we’ll ensure that children can reach their full potential and achieve academic success and economic independence. Their success is South Florida’s success.
