Bard College at Simon’s Rock is the only college specifically designed for students ready to pursue their college education as early as age 15.
The Pathway to Academic Choice and Excellence (PACE) program at Simon’s Rock is designed for students who are bright, motivated, and ready for the greater challenge of college at a younger age, and who need further instruction to advance their English language skills.
“If you want to succeed in 21st century business, you need to become a critical thinker.”-Harvard Business Review
In the PACE program, students begin their work toward a degree much earlier than their peers. Whether they aspire to study medicine, engineering, computer science, or any other academic field, students can begin their studies immediately at Simon’s Rock. Whatever their ambitions, PACE students improve their abilities to think critically, communicate effectively, and solve problems creatively.
Year Three: By the third year, PACE students are fully caught up to students who did not need additional English language study. They declare an area of academic concentration, and complete the prerequisites for more advanced undergraduate study. Students may work toward a degree in any one of 35+ academic concentrations. Options include (but are not limited to):
