Bard College at Simon's Rock: the Early College

Newly Admitted Academy Students

Congratulations on your acceptance, and on the beginning of your new personal and academic adventure!

It's time to make your decision. As you consider your acceptance to Bard Academy, we want to introduce you to life at the Academy, the people, and services that are here for you, and, of course, your peers, the newest class of Rockers.

You're attending high school on a college campus with shared resources and opportunities. We’ve compiled some helpful information for you as you make your plans for next year.


Just because you are delving into deeper academics, it doesn't mean you have to do it alone. The Academy provides committed support right from the very beginning.
