NEWARK, NJ--(Marketwired - May 09, 2014) - The 29 seniors participating in New Jersey SEEDS' College Preparatory Program (CPP) received a total of 142 acceptances from 55 colleges and universities across the country this year. Students have been accepted to: Bard College, Boston College, Colgate University, Denison University, Dickinson College, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Hood College, La Salle University, Lehigh University, Muhlenberg College, Ohio Wesleyan University, Quinnipiac University, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), among others.
New Jersey SEEDS is a 22-year old nonprofit that changes the lives of motivated, high-achieving students from low-income families by transforming their educational opportunities. Its College Preparatory Program is designed to expand academic proficiency among students in inner-city public high schools; SEEDS students are from Orange High School and Trenton Central High School (Main and West Campuses). The goal of the three-year program is to increase the number of students who aspire to, enter and graduate from competitive colleges.
Students apply for the College Preparatory Program in the ninth grade. Selected students participate in classes each Saturday and for two weeks each summer on the campus of Hobart and William Smith Colleges. Beginning in their junior year, CPP scholars work closely with SEEDS' placement team and a corps of volunteer mentors to navigate the college admissions process and negotiate a financial aid package. In all, students will spend more than 700 hours in class during the duration of their time with SEEDS.
This year's seniors will be honored at the annual College Preparatory Program Graduation Ceremony, to be held Monday, June 9 at The Newark Club. To receive an invitation, please contact Sarah Cassidy at email@example.com.
