About the Bard Early Colleges
The 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. The 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. The Bard Early Colleges begin preparing students for college work as early as the 9th grade and offer ongoing guidance and academic support. Now in its second decade, the Bard Early College network serves over 3,000 students in campuses in the Bronx, Lower Manhattan and Queens, New York; Newark, New Jersey; New Orleans, Louisiana; Cleveland, Ohio; Baltimore, Maryland; and Washington, D.C. Since 2003, Bard College has awarded more than 5,000 A.A. degrees to its early college students.
