SEED’s track record is proven. We’re exceptionally proud of our students for their hard work and commitment to graduating from high school and progressing towards college graduation.

90 percent of SEED students who enter the ninth grade graduate from high school. For comparison: 76 percent of all students across the nation graduate from high school.

More than 90 percent of SEED graduates have been accepted to a 4-year college or university.

More than 90 percent of SEED graduates have enrolled in college. For comparison: 52 percent of low-income high school graduates enroll immediately in college.

  • 92 percent of all SEED graduates have enrolled in college. (Classes of 2004 – 2012)
  • 93 percent of SEED’s first eight classes have enrolled in college. (Classes of 2004 – 2011)
  • 95 percent of SEED’s first seven classes have enrolled in college. (Classes of 2004 – 2010)
  • 84 percent of the graduates from the Class of 2012 immediately enrolled in college, which is 5-6 percent higher than the immediate enrollment rate the previous two years.  Immediate enrollment is a strong predictor of college graduation.

More than 60 percent of SEED graduates have college degrees or are currently enrolled in college. For comparison: 11 percent of low-income, first-generation students who enroll in college earn a bachelor’s degree within six years.

  • 64 percent of SEED graduates have college degrees or are currently enrolled in college.  (Classes of 2004 – 2012)

SEED graduates attend college in more than 20 states across the country, and they go on to a pretty even mix of private and public institutions: historically black and predominately white; and small-, medium-, and large-sized colleges. Our college counseling and College Transition & Success (CTS) teams work closely with students/graduates to select colleges that are good matches for their particular needs, personalities, and goals.
