Welcome to the Bard College Conservatory Community.
Congratulations again on your acceptance to the Bard Conservatory! We are very excited that you will join us here. Bard is a place where you can discover what makes you unique as an artist—a place where you can challenge yourself, where you can take artistic chances, where you can further develop your talents, and perhaps discover some talents you didn't know you had. Finally, I think you will also find Bard to be a supportive and collegial community—besides which, you should have a lot of fun!
This section of the website is to help you take the first steps of becoming part of the Conservatory. Below you will also find a downloadable checklist of items you will need to accomplish before arriving at Bard.
Welcome to the Bard Conservatory. You will learn a lot, you will have fun, and you will never be bored!
