Application Process

Upon receipt of the application for admission, an interview with the Preparatory Division director will be scheduled. At this time, questions about the program can be answered and a determination made as to the seriousness of the interest of both student and parent(s) in the program. No audition is required. Motivation and enthusiasm are important criteria for admission. There is no interview process for students who are only taking Music and Movement and/or Chorus.

Applications for Fall 2016 are still being accepted though space is very limited.  
Please contact program directors at bardprep@bard.edu for more information.
