About Bard High School Early College Manhattan
Bard High School Early College is a screened New York City public high school located on the Lower East Side. A unique partnership between Bard College and the NYC Department of Education, BHSEC seeks to provide a rigorous course of study that emphasizes thinking through writing, discussion, and inquiry. This alternative to the traditional high school is founded on the belief that many young people are ready and eager to do serious college work at age sixteen. Based on the premise that these young adults' ambition to learn must be taken seriously, BHSEC's four-year program enables highly motivated students to earn a New York State high school Regents diploma and a tuition-free Bard College associate's degree in four years.
