The SEED Foundation (also often referred to as the SEED Schools) is a private foundation, established in 1997 to provide boarding school college-preparatory educational opportunities to underserved students. In 2002, the SEED School of DC received a $100,000 grant from Oprah Winfreys Angel Network for the construction of new dormitory facilities. In 2010, the SEED schools were featured on 60 Minutes and the Washington D.C. school is featured in the 2010 documentary film Waiting for "Superman". The SEED schools are boarding schools serving disadvantaged students located in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Miami. The schools integrate "a rigorous academic program with a nurturing boarding program, which teaches life skills and provides a safe and secure environment." The students live in campus dormitories during the week in order to provide students with a uniform residential experience.
