The Institution

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