The SEED School of Miami

The SEED Foundation — a catalyst for change in urban education — is on the threshold of
national expansion. In addition to operating high-performing schools in Washington, D.C. and
Baltimore, Maryland, SEED is actively developing new schools in both Florida and Ohio. The
success of the SEED model has been showcased in media outlets and publications such as 60
Minutes, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and in the documentary film, Waiting for
Superman. The President of the United States has hailed SEED as “a true success story.”
In 1998, SEED opened the nation’s first public, college-preparatory, tuition-free boarding school
for underserved students in Washington, D.C. In 2008, The SEED School of Maryland opened its
doors to welcome new students. The SEED School of Miami will be the third SEED school,
opening in the fall of 2014.
SEED’s innovative model integrates a rigorous academic program with a boarding program that
teaches life skills and provides students with a safe and secure environment. Our model
includes academic, residential, mental health, physical health, social, and enrichment programs
– all available on-campus. SEED emphasizes positive contact with families and community
leaders, thereby strengthening students’ support structures and surrounding communities.
The SEED Foundation is collaborating with Florida state and local leaders to open The SEED
School of Miami (SEED Miami). Based on the success of our first two schools, SEED was
selected by the Florida Department of Education to serve as the school operator, and in 2012
our charter application to the Miami-Dade Public School Board was approved. SEED Miami will
grow to serve 400 students in grades 6-12, 100 percent of whom will come from underserved
communities across South Florida.
