Congratulations and welcome to the Class of 2025! You’ve earned it!


Covid-19 has made this a challenging year for prospective students who have had to get to know our unique school virtually.


We know how important it is to be able to picture yourself at SEM...
So, from January 25 - 29, we are pleased to offer Covid-safe visit opportunities to accepted students.
Below you will find visit requirements, registration and information about class offerings.

If you are unable to visit, stop by SEM on Friday, January 29 at 4 PM for a drive-by SEM swag pick-up!



Visit Day Requirements:

Visits are for 8th grade girls only.

We are thrilled to offer this Covid-safe opportunity to introduce accepted students to our SEM community.

  • Proof of a negative Covid test within the last 7 consecutive days  is required of each girl upon arrival. Students who do no have proof can sign up for a rapid Covid test at the Brighton-Eggert Pharmacy (brightoneggertpharmacy.com/covid-testing)

    SEM will reimburse families for the cost of the test (up to $65). Please bring your receipt on your visit day. 

  • Masks must be worn for the entirety of the visit.
  • SEM will host no more than two accepted students per time slot. Please RSVP ASAP if you or your daughter feel strongly that she attend a particular class. 
  • Each visit lasts only approximately 1 hour. Students must be picked up at the end time of their time slot.

If you there is a specific SEM freshman or sophomore preferred as the visitor guide, please indicate her name on the registration form.

A member of our admission team will reach out to you the day prior to your visit with any additional instructions and to confirm the drop-off location.

Contact Director of Day Admission Alexandra Tramposch at 716-885-6780 x204 or atramposch@buffaloseminary.org with any questions.
