About the Bard Early Colleges
The Bard Early Colleges are founded on the belief that many high school–age
students are eager and ready for the intellectual challenges of a college
education. The Bard Early Colleges act on this belief by providing younger
scholars with a tuition-free, credit-bearing college course of study in the
liberal arts and sciences following the 9th and 10th grades. Students are
taught by college faculty in seminar classes; they receive up to 60 college
credits and an associate in arts (A.A.) degree from Bard College,
concurrently with a high school diploma. The Bard Early Colleges begin
preparing students for college work as early as the 9th grade and offer
ongoing guidance and academic support.
Now in its second decade, the Bard Early College network serves over 2,900
students in campuses in Lower Manhattan and Queens, New York; Newark, New
Jersey; New Orleans, Louisiana; Cleveland, Ohio; Baltimore, Maryland; and
Washington, DC. Since 2003, Bard College has awarded more than 3,000 A.A.
degrees to its early college students.
