About the Bard Early Colleges
Bard Early Colleges are founded on the belief that many high school–age students are eager and ready for the intellectual challenges of a college education.

Students are taught by college faculty in seminar classes; they receive up to 60 college credits and an associate in arts (A.A.) degree from Bard College, concurrently with a high school diploma. Bard Early Colleges begin preparing students for college work as early as the 9th grade and offer ongoing guidance and academic supports.
Now in its third decade, the Bard Early College network serves over 3,000 students in campuses in the Bronx, Lower Manhattan, Queens, and Hudson, New York; Newark, New Jersey; New Orleans, Louisiana; Cleveland, Ohio; Washington, D.C.; and Baltimore, Maryland.
