Our students make the decision to leave high school to start college early. At Simon’s Rock, that’s a choice that opens more options and leads to more opportunities.
Rockers find that the college degrees they earn open a broad range of opportunities for future employment and graduate study. Some students work with their former high school counselors to transfer credits back toward a high school diploma, while others complete a GED with support from our academic staff.
“I [left] high school and started college early. On the medical school application I had to put when I graduated and it wouldn’t let me skip that step, so I just put the year I left high school and no one’s asked about it because by the time you’re getting a bachelor’s they don’t really care if you’ve graduated high school or not.”-Sam '09
At Simon’s Rock, our students choose: stay for four years to complete a BA in a remarkably individualized program, or transfer after two years with an AA degree.
