Tuition and Fees

An exceptional opportunity — and a commitment to accessibility

No other college does what we do. For students ready for a four-year, residential liberal arts college experience after the 10th or 11th grade, Simon’s Rock provides a truly one-of-a-kind opportunity.

Nowhere else offers you first-class facilities, rigorous, individualized study, and a high degree of personal attention now, when you’re ready for early college; and no other college provides extensive support systems designed specifically with younger college students in mind.

Our goal is to maintain the highest level of teaching and services, and a campus experience that continually exceeds expectations, while making that experience accessible to all worthy candidates. In a typical year, Bard College at Simon's Rock awards substantial financial assistance to over 80% of our students. We are committed to working with families to make this invaluable opportunity available to those who need and are truly ready for it.

We encourage you to learn more about the financial aid process, and to work with your admission counselor as you explore your options.
