In 2021, The SEED School of Miami will be celebrating our inaugural graduating class!
Time has flown by fast. It seems like just yesterday that we welcomed our first sixth-grade students to begin their journey at a college-prep, public boarding school. Now, they are quickly approaching high school graduation, and on their way to enrolling in college.
To support our students during their college access journey, we’ve hired our founding college counselor – Martine Marcellin! We’re so excited to welcome Martine to the SEED Miami community. Martine joins SEED Miami from Branches, Inc., where she was program manager of Climb to College & Careers, a college access program for three sites, serving 150 students. With a background in college readiness, mentorship, and relationship building, Martine’s expertise makes her a great addition to SEED Miami’s School Leadership Team, and The SEED Foundation’s College Transition and Success (CTS) team.
As a member of the CTS team, Martine will provide personalized assistance to SEED Miami juniors in searching for scholarships, researching universities, and navigating any challenges they face when applying to college. In addition, she will cultivate strong relationships with our families and guide them through the college access and success process which includes college exposure, search, fit, application, admissions, and the graduation process.
We look forward to watching Martine grow as a member of the SEED community, as she will play a pivotal role in the academic success of our scholars.
