SEO Scholars turns untapped potential into newfound greatness.
For more than 55 years SEO Scholars has helped close the achievement and opportunity gap for thousands of underserved public high school students. Our Scholars have gone on to and graduated from public research universities, all eight Ivy League schools, and a long list of selective private colleges, and have further gone on to succeed in the workforce. SEO Scholars are creating an ecosystem of excellence.
100% of scholars are accepted into four-year colleges. Since 2013, over 90% of SEO Scholars were accepted to the most selective colleges and universities, as ranked by US News & World Report.
- Independent studies have shown that Scholars earn higher GPAs in their high school courses than their peers.
- Nationwide, underserved students typically score 150-300 points less on the SAT than other students do. A 2014 study of SEO Scholars showed that for the previous five years, our Black and Hispanic Scholars outscored all national SAT test-takers.
