Bard College at Simon's Rock: the Early College

It’s All In Your Backyard

When inspiration meets motivation—to study, to make and create, to work out, or even to just hang out—everything you need is close by.

A look at our campus

You can walk the length of our wooded, village-like campus in about 10 minutes. But there’s nothing small-minded about the facilities and resources you’ll find at Simon’s Rock. These 275 acres can become a sanctuary and a launchpad—a place where you’ll grow into being a passionate learner, a leader, and an innovator. Every space for classes, studios, labs, athletics, lectures, and performances comes fully equipped. All that’s missing? You and your talents.

Come Visit Us

You can explore our centrally located campus on our interactive map, but visiting in person is the best way to understand what makes Simon’s Rock rock. One of our charming and knowledgeable student guides will personally escort you (and your family) around, take you to lunch, and answer all of your questions. 

You’ll meet current students, check out the facilities, sit in on classes (during the academic year), and sample the cuisine at the dining hall. You can also meet with a member of our admission team, so come prepared with a list of questions! We offer individualized visits as well as visit day programs called Discovery Days. Call us (800-235-7186) or submit an online request, and we’ll take it from there.
