Register for Discovery Day

Ready to explore Bard College at Simon’s Rock? We have a whole day planned for you. 

Discovery Days give prospective students and families a chance to tour the campus, meet faculty and students, and get to know our community. Most Simon's Rock students apply for early college while in 10th and 11th grade. If you are an 8th or 9th grader, consider visiting Bard Academy, our two-year high school that feeds into the College.
