Bard Academy at Simon's Rock

Thank you for considering Bard Academy at Simon's Rock.


During the last two years of high school, many students spend less time learning and more time preoccupied with the college admission process. At Bard Academy at Simon's Rock, we have a different philosophy about high school. We keep the focus on deep learning and intellectual discovery by ensuring that all students in good academic and social standing are accepted into Bard College at Simon's Rock after the 10th grade. Our enriched curriculum and student-centered teaching style enable students to earn an associate degree when most of their peers are just finishing high school.
