About the Bard Early Colleges
Bard Early Colleges (BECs) are founded on the belief that many
high–school–age students are eager and ready for the intellectual
challenges of a college education. Bard Early Colleges act on this
belief by providing younger scholars with a tuition-free,
credit-bearing college course of study in the liberal arts and
sciences following the 9th and 10th grades. Students are taught by
college faculty in seminar classes; they receive up to 60 college
credits and an associate in arts (A.A.) degree from Bard College,
concurrently with a high school diploma. Bard Early Colleges begin
preparing students for college work as early as the 9th grade and
offer ongoing guidance and academic supports.
Now in its second decade, the Bard Early College network serves
over 3,000 students in campuses in NYC; Newark, New Jersey; New
Orleans, Louisiana; Cleveland, Ohio; Baltimore, Maryland;
Washington, D.C.; and Hudson, New York. Since 2003, Bard College
has awarded 3,000 A.A. degrees to its early college students.
