Bard Academy at Simon's Rock is the nation’s only two-year high school that provides guaranteed admission to early college after 10th grade to one of the most respected academic institutions in the U.S., Bard College at Simon’s Rock. We haven’t condensed high school; instead, we’ve created a program that takes a collegiate approach to learning.

Since Bard Academy shares faculty with Bard College at Simon’s Rock, students build meaningful relationships with their future college professors. Faculty are leading scholars in their fields of study and experts at engaging younger students.

    Bard Academy at Simon's Rock Reviews

    1 review
    I really enjoyed spending time as a student in Bard Academy at Simon's Rock. Overall, I have to say the academics of the school are incredibly strong, and the program most certainly accomplishes its goal of preparing individuals for college in two years. Bard Academy offers opportunities you can't find almost anywhere else: the chance to have all of your classes taught by incredible professors, the privilege of having the full resources of a college campus and being able to speak with any college professor in any field about anything on your mind, and being able to take (admittedly up to two) college classes while in high school. My greatest frustration during my time in the Academy was the limit on two college classes; however, the program is quite young and is still evolving. As a result, the staff and faculty who lead it love to hear your propositions, and enjoy working alongside students to make things work best both from an administrative and an individual student's perspective.
