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.
To give our students the right building blocks for a full, meaningful experience, Bard Academy shares both faculty and campus resources with Bard College at Simon’s Rock. Bard Academy is one of very few private high schools with college-quality facilities dedicated to arts, science and technology, and research and scholarship, as well as health, community, and athletics.
For the 2020-2021 academic year, Bard Academy is providing socially-distanced, in-person classes. Learn more about our COVID response at simons-rock.edu/covid19.
