Among the oldest girls' schools in the United States, Buffalo Seminary is an independent day and boarding school offering forward-thinking education for girls since 1851.

The SEM culture of achievement, scholarship, leadership, and creativity sees and honors the promise of a young girl.

Within our historic halls, around our Harkness tables, on teams and in clubs, we are connected by both our centuries-old traditions and now through our successful remote learning program. Girls discover the power of their voice as they prepare for lifelong endeavors.

We offer girls the experience of safe independence. At SEM, trust is intrinsic and responsible, thoughtful women are the result.

Whether you are from around the corner or from around the world, you will find a place at SEM.
