Bard College at Simon’s Rock is a highly selective, small, liberal arts college for students eager to begin college early, usually after the tenth or eleventh grade. It is the model for the Bard High School Early Colleges in New York City and elsewhere. Excellent teaching is key to early college success, and we seek applicants with experience or particular interest in working with highly motivated young people. Bard Academy prepares students to enter our early college, offering a rigorous and creative ninth and tenth grade program. The successful candidate will be expected to teach in both the College and the Academy.
Applicants should demonstrate a strong interest in actively engaging students, in contributing to curriculum development, in making connections with other disciplines, and in aligning their teaching and research interests with those of the student population. Our Computer Science program promotes undergraduate research. Students have authored academic papers and contributed to building and maintaining our servers.
