169th Buffalo Seminary Commencement - 1st Ever Virtual

Beyond the academics of high school, SEM has aims to nurture character and build resilience and resourcefulness in our girls. SEM is proud to graduate young women ready to apply the critical thinking and adaptability necessary to succeed in our globalized world. During these unprecedented times, the Class of 2020 has been tested. We are immensely proud of each of them, and we are excited to celebrate our SENIORS!
