Sophia Echavarria (SEED DC '04) shares how SEED gives young scholars the opportunity to escape the challenges that home life may bring, and provide them with the support they need to reach their full potential.


SEED LA is a college-preparatory, public boarding school, managed by The SEED Foundation, preceded by The SEED School of Washington, DC, The SEED School of Maryland, and The SEED School of Miami.

SEED LA seeks to serve youth who would benefit most from a 24-hour learning environment, students who:

  • Meet low-income requirements

  • Live in underserved areas of LA County

  • Are referred by mentor, pastor, social worker

  • Have experienced homelessness

  • Are “resilient youth” engaged by county child welfare system

  • Have families who live in Vermont/ Manchester neighborhood
