The Student Support Services (SSS) program at The SEED School of Miami provides a comprehensive, coordinated, integrated approach to address the various needs of its students, families and staff while creating a college bound culture, and supporting the elements of resilience, consistence and persistence required for students to achieve this goal. We utilize proactive, prevention-oriented programs and services that promote a positive school climate in which individuals feel connected, safe and supported.  The SSS Department assists students to take full advantage of their SEED school experience.  We strive to utilize the comprehensive Character Values Life Skills curriculum that delineates goals and competencies in the areas of personal/social, career and academic development, and prepares students for academic and social-emotional success in school, at work, in the community and in personal relationships.
