Applying Online?

You cannot save your work and return to finish the online application later so please be prepared to complete the application when you start. The parent portion takes 20-25 minutes.

There is a section of the application that has scholar statements for the applicant to complete. This section can be skipped if they are not available at the time you complete the application. We can mail a hard copy of the questions if needed.

We’ve included fields where you can upload required documents such as the two pages of the most recent 1040 federal tax return, the final report card from last school year and the most current report card from the current school year. Progress reports will NOT be considered. If you are not prepared to upload anything at the time of applying online, please make note of the alternate ways to submit documents.

  • Two (2) pages of the most recent 1040 federal tax (see example)
  • Final report card for 2021-22 school year

Scholar Questions

All applicants must also complete the scholar questions which you can find here.  Please note that that ONLY High School Prep applicants need to complete the essay portion.

*You can turn in the application without these required documents but you’ll need to submit them to the admissions office before the program application deadline.

If you prefer to complete a hardcopy of the application you can access it here.

If you need a records request form to submit to your scholar’s school, you can find it here. Once you complete it and submit it to the school, staff will send the requested report cards directly to Buffalo Prep.
