Sample Class Schedule

What will your days at Bard Academy look like?

Bard AcademyAfter breakfast, you’ll head off to classes, with breaks for lunch and study periods. From 4 to 5:30, you’ll participate in your choice of activities on offer (think: student clubs, sports, yoga or other fitness classes at the Kilpatrick). You’ll eat dinner (veg, vegan, or omnivorous—it’s all on the table), and then you can head back to your residence hall for some R&R. Study Hall is scheduled for 6:30 to 7:30, followed by optional music classes and then a couple hours to unwind and a recommended lights-out for that all-important shut-eye at 11.
