Our academic programs are demanding, exciting, and designed to support your growth—because the journey matters as much as the destination.
At Simon’s Rock, excitement about learning is right where it belongs — at the center of everything.
During and after class, you’ll get swept up in discussions with peers who share your commitment to intellectual curiosity. Along the way, you’ll develop an individualized plan of study that combines course work in your favorite subjects, world-expanding opportunities both on and off-campus, and, ultimately, the completion of your own senior thesis.
Rockers choose early college because they want to be challenged. For the first time, you’ll have ownership over your educational development, as we give you the support to imagine, design, and plan your individual path.
“…The jobs that’ll exist 20 years from now — they haven’t been invented yet. How do you prepare people for jobs that don’t exist? And the answer is, you teach them to learn for themselves for the rest of their lives. You teach them to think for themselves, and that’s what we try and do…”— Bernard Rogers,
Emeritus Faculty in Literature
“The professors here care so much about what we’re learning, and they care about our well-being too. And they’re so willing to do whatever it takes to make sure you succeed.”— Bethany Geiger, ’10
