The tuition-free New Jersey SEEDS College Preparatory Program (CPP) prepares academically motivated high school students for admission to selective four-year colleges. CPP provides academic classes, ACT preparation, cultural enrichment, leadership retreats, exposure to a variety of top-tier colleges and universities, and assistance with the college admissions and financial aid processes (For a list of college acceptances for our College Preparatory Program Class of 2014, please click here). Currently, approximately 75 students participate in this program.

Throughout high school, CPP students participate in classes held every Saturday during the school year. Each summer, the students attend a residential program held at Hobart and William Smith Colleges (Geneva, NY).
