College Preparatory Program

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 2016, please click here). 

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

The final class of CPP Scholars will graduate from SEEDS in 2017. To learn more about the new College Scholars Program, click here.
