Visit the Academy

Bard Academy at Simon’s Rock is high school reimagined.

We encourage and welcome you to our campus for an open house or individual visit. You’ll gain a better sense of the exceptional experience Bard Academy offers, and you’ll be able to meet the students and faculty. We’d also be happy to schedule an admission interview.

Schedule an Individual Visit

Visits include a campus tour, lunch with a student, classroom visit (if classes are in session), and an opportunity to meet or interview with an admission counselor. Expect to be on campus for three to four hours. Individual visits are offered Monday through Friday throughout the year.

Academy Open House

Saturday, October 19, 2019

Take the day to imagine yourself at Bard Academy! This comprehensive group visit day for prospective high school students offers the opportunity to meet the Head of School, faculty, campus life leaders, and students. You will also take a tour of our beautiful New England campus, and experience a class with a member of our unique faculty - college professors who have chosen to teach younger scholars. The Open House is a great way to learn about the academic and residential programs.


Schedule a Skype interview

We understand that some families may not be able to visit campus. We’re happy to arrange phone or Skype interviews with international applicants and others for whom a visit is not possible. To schedule, please email
