About Bard Early Colleges (BECs)

Bard High School Early College (BHSEC) Queens is a partnership between Bard College and the New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE). BHSEC Queens, a national model in the field of public-school reform, provides motivated students the opportunity to move in four years from the ninth grade through the first two years of college, the majority earning an associate of arts (A.A.) degree from Bard College as well as a high school diploma at no cost to families.  The academic program emphasizes small class size and a commitment to teaching a diverse student body in a liberal arts environment.  To learn more about our program you can go to this web site: https://www.bard.edu/earlycollege/about/
