Civic Engagement

At Buffalo Creek Academy, the last words of our mission statement are “positively impact our community". Our Civic Engagement program has been designed as an integrated part of our school curriculum. We believe that it is important for our students to connect their academic achievement with our community development. We believe that civic engagement is not a course, it is a mindset and an essential part of our school culture.

The adults at Buffalo Creek lead by example, we participated in and lead many Civic Engagement Campaigns for the Buffalo area. Below are a few examples of our campaigns.
