CPP Overview

Eligibility  |  How to Apply  |  FAQ

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. Currently, approximately 90 students from our partner high schools – Orange High School (Orange) or Trenton Central High School Main and West Campuses (Trenton) – 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).
