Welcome to BECNO

Bard Early College in New Orleans engages bright, intellectually curious students through a tuition-free, immersive liberal arts curriculum. By promoting authentic and supportive undergraduate opportunities, BECNO faculty and staff prepare students of all academic backgrounds for further college success. We act on this belief by offering 11th and 12th graders a unique opportunity: Bard Early College students spend the second half of every school day as undergraduates of Bard College, completing the first year of a Bard education during the last two years of high school. BECNO runs two half-day college campuses in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Education, enrolling over 100 students from public high schools across New Orleans. BECNO campuses are among the most rigorous and inclusive early colleges in the country.
