  • We have a few spaces still available for the 2018 – 2019 school year. If you are interested in applying, contact Cynthia Raso rasoc@si.edu so we can arrange a time to do a Visitor’s Day.

Visitor Day

Our summer Visitor Day has past but families can join a weekend workshop in order to experience the program’s schedule and pedagogy.


Appropriately aged students enrolled in SEE will receive priority for participation in SEE the following year.

Enrollment in SEEC (full-time program)

Involvement in SEE does not in any way impact future enrollment opportunities in SEEC’s full time program. SEE participants do not receive priority in the traditional school year lottery. If you are interested in SEEC’s full-time program, please contact Melody Passemante Powell at 202-633-2941.
