The Office of Admission at Bard High School Early College (BHSEC) is committed to recruiting highly motivated young adults eager to participate in our early college program. It is our goal to provide our students with a challenging liberal arts curriculum-one that fosters and cultivates their intellectual curiosity and creativity. To ensure the individual success of students in our Early College program, we carefully consider the results of a math and writing assessment before interviewing eligible candidates for admission. We seek to admit those applicants who demonstrate maturity, intellectual curiosity, and a love of learning.
Accepted BHSEC students can look forward to completing most of the high school program in the first two years. Qualified ninth and tenth grade students --those who have maintaned a 2.0 grade point average-- are eligible for entry into the early college program. At the end of four years, students will have completed 60 college credits and received the Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree in the liberal arts and sciences from Bard College as well as their high school diploma.
Prospective students and their parents may visit a BHSEC campus during an Open House or Information Session to find out more about the school.
Please keep in mind that attending an open house or information session is not a requirement for admission to BHSEC. Students are not penalized in any way during the admission process by not visiting BHSEC prior to applying.
