Buffalo Seminary's athletic philosophy is an outgrowth of our school's mission. The program emphasizes excellence, commitment, participation, and the cultivation of the whole person.

A SEM athlete will grow as an individual while learning the values of teamwork, sportsmanship, competition, responsibility, and dedication. As a Red-Tailed Hawk she will have the chance to play, to impove, to be excellent. She will try hard and she will be challenged.

The athletic department provides each student with a sense of belonging, while encouraging every student to achieve her personal best as a team member or individually in the pursuit of health and fitness.

SEM's teams are the Red-Tailed Hawks. They can be followed on Twitter at@HawkSquawks.
