Buffalo Prep

About Buffalo Prep

Buffalo Prep is a not-for-profit organization that prepares promising, economically disadvantaged youth for success in college-preparatory high schools and higher education. Buffalo Prep offers four summer and after-school academic enrichment programs for bright 5th-12th graders to help students excel in school and beyond. Many students begin Prep’s rigorous programs as early as 5th grade and commit their summers, evenings and weekends to prepare for higher achievement. Since its inception, the opportunities Buffalo Prep provide include but are not limited to: academic enrichment, social support groups, academic tutoring, mentoring opportunities, college test preparation courses, admissions and financial assistance, college presentations and tours, academic competitions, and cultural events. Each year, 100% of the high school graduates from our program not only graduate from high school, but are accepted to colleges and universities.

We’re not a school, but rather, a dedicated organization that works with private, public, and charter high schools to help disadvantaged youth take advantage of a first-rate college-preparatory education. Since our founding in 1989, Buffalo Prep has been helping to close the achievement gap for Western New York kids who are bright, talented, but economically disadvantaged. We nurture the dreamer, the leader, the activist, and the scholar in every student, while strengthening the diversity of our partner schools.
