S.E.E.D. (Diversity Program)
S.E.E.D. stands for Students for Educational Excellence through Diversity. S.E.E.D. is a school-wide, multi-racial/cultural, multi-class, and multi-religious organization open to everyone in the Prep student body. The main function of S.E.E.D. is to foster diversity through cultural, racial, and social interaction through the following support services.

- Academic Enrichment Meetings are held 32 Mondays during the academic year for freshman and sophomore members of S.E.E.D.
- Student Meetings are held once a month by grade level (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior). Freshman meetings focus upon transition into the Prep community on both an academic and social level. Sophomore and junior meetings emphasize building leadership skills and maintaining a balance between the social and the academic and senior meetings focus upon the college application process and the transition from high school to college.
- The Brothers for Others Mentor Program provides freshman and sophomore S.E.E.D. Scholars the opportunity to be mentored by an upperclassman S.E.E.D. Scholar. Students discuss different strategies to academically and socially improve at Fairfield College Preparatory School. Meetings are held three times a year in a social setting where students openly discuss issues that may arise during the academic day.
