Bard College at Simon's Rock 

Bard College at Simon’s Rock has been a leader in the early college movement for more than 40 years and continues to distinguish itself as the only residential college in the country specifically designed to provide bright, motivated students with the opportunity to begin college immediately after the tenth or eleventh grade.

At Simon’s Rock, students experience a transformative education in the liberal arts and sciences in the company of smart, independent, creative peers who share their excitement for learning and their desire to be part of a vibrant intellectual community. They do this in an environment specifically designed for 16 and 17 year olds, rather than a college culture created for traditionally-aged students.
