In 2011, SEA relocated program staff to partner sites to be more accessible to students in areas with high rates of poverty and educational inequity. SEA staff are now stationed throughout King County so students can get support at a convenient location and time for them. Collaborative partnerships with over 30 agencies, including community colleges, GED programs, alternative high schools, basic needs centers, and housing programs, are at the core of SEA's service model. Though our students come from poverty and adversity, 81% of our college-enrolled students have either have graduated or are in good academic standing. By comparison, only 58% of community college students graduate, regardless of socioeconomic background.
