The Summer Success Academy is an innovative collaboration that brings together SUNY Erie and the City of Buffalo Mayor’s Summer Internship Program. Fifty Buffalo Public and Charter high school graduates are selected to participate in the program. The Summer Success Academy strives to reduce or eliminate the need for non-credit (developmental) coursework at the start of the fall semester and to strengthen participants’ academic and personal growth. The program also seeks to familiarize students with the expectations of post-secondary level academic work. If you are a senior in high school and plan to attend SUNY Erie, please contact us and/or your high school guidance counselor for more information.
