Bard College at Simon's Rock: the Early College

Great Pine Society

Named for the family farm on which Elizabeth Blodgett Hall founded Simon’s Rock, the Great Pine Society offers families an opportunity to join a network of philanthropic support.

Just as the Hall family established the roots for a new educational model at Simon’s Rock, the families of the Great Pine Society will continue to advance our mission to inspire the curiosity and creativity of younger scholars. Parents of current students and alumni who contribute to Simon’s Rock are members of the Great Pine Society. Membership is also open to other family members.
