SEED Foundation to open boarding school for high school students in Los Angeles

Feb. 4, 2022
The SEED School of Los Angeles County will open with only ninth graders in its first year.

The SEED Foundation plans to open a boarding school for high school students later this year in Los Angeles.

The SEED School of Los Angeles County will be a charter school and the first public boarding high school in California, The Los Angeles Daily News reports. 

The campus, a 147,000-square-foot facility in South Los Angeles, will open this fall for incoming ninth graders.

The curriculum will be focused on transportation infrastructure, STEM fields and the humanities, the school's website says.

Students will live on campus most of the week and return home for weekends. The school will provide academic, social, emotional and physical and mental health services on campus.

The campus will have 20 classrooms, an art studio, science and maker space labs as well as other educational and recreational spaces. 

Students who live in South L.A. and the Vermont/Manchester area of the city will be given priority for admission, as will students who are homeless, are in the foster care or probation systems or whose parent is incarcerated.

The Los Angeles campus will be the fourth SEED school to open. Other campuses are in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Miami.
