Simon’s Rock was founded to give young people an opportunity to pursue their intellectual
interests at an earlier age.
Support a transformative experience for young people excited about learning
For over 50 years, we’ve cultivated a rich network of esteemed faculty and staff to provide students
with the chance to practice leadership skills, express creativity, and collaborate
in academic and social settings. The result is an ever-growing community of alumni, composed of leaders and innovators in every field of study and industry.
Simon’s Rock is a transformative experience for bright, highly motivated young people
who are excited about learning. Take mathematics major Ishmael, whose parents came to America from Ghana hoping to open doors for their children.
Or Maria, who, at only three years old knew it was her passion and mission to heal people.
Support a student like Ishmael
At Simon’s Rock, deep learning replaces rote memorization and repetition. Small class
sizes and strong faculty-student bonds create opportunities for learning, intellectual
curiosity, and growth.
Contribute $5,000, and you’ll have the opportunity to name a one-year scholarship.
We believe that students who want to pursue advanced work should have the freedom
and support to do so. Nothing should hold them back. That’s why close to 80 percent
of Bard Academy students and 85 percent of early college students receive some form
of financial aid.
