The SEED School of Miami

A nonprofit organization

$52,733 raised by 109 donors


The SEED School of Miami is Florida's only college-preparatory, public boarding school for South Florida students. It is open 24 hours a day, five days a week, and students return to their homes on weekends. 

What Makes SEED Miami Different:

  1. SEED Miami was created for students who most need a 24-hour environment and recruits a diverse population of students, typically first-generation college bound, from South Florida’s most under-resourced communities. 
  2. SEED Miami creates a safe and nurturing environment for its students and provides 3 healthy meals a day, housing in college-inspired dorms, on-site medical and mental health services, and impactful exposure opportunities.
  3. The school employs positive, adult role models, including 4 full-time licensed Mental Health Counselors, who can be accessed 24-hours a day.
  4. SEED Miami is committed to college success. Our alumni are supported (beginning in 12th grade and continuing throughout their college careers) by the College Transition & Success program, a targeted and proven model that includes a unique college matching process. 

SEED Miami Successes:

100% of SEED Miami Graduates have been accepted into 2- or 4-year collegiate programs. Thanks to the unique SEED Model, SEED Network graduates are out-performing their peers. SEED graduates are 4x more likely to graduate from college than a child with a similar demographic. In fact, when compared to national averages, SEED Network graduates have higher rates of:

  1. High School Graduation (90% vs. 86%)
  2. College Enrollment (98% vs. 40%)
  3. College Graduation (48% vs. 34%)
