Bard College at Simon's Rock is the only full-time, four year, highly ranked college of the liberal arts and sciences designed for motivated students ready for college before completing high school.

We are an early college. This means that our students typically enter Simon’s Rock after the 10th or 11th grade, when they are 16 or 17 years old.

Our mission is to educate young scholars, ready to engage in a college curriculum, before they graduate from high school.
