Bard Academy (Grades 9-10)
During the last two years of high school, many students spend less time learning and more time preoccupied with the college admission process. At Bard Academy
at Simon’s Rock, we have a different philosophy about high school. We keep the focus on deep learning and intellectual discovery by ensuring that all students in
good academic and social standing are accepted into Bard College at Simon’s Rock after the 10th grade. Our enriched curriculum and student-centered teaching
style enable students to earn an associate degree when most of their peers are just finishing high school.
To give our students the right building blocks for a full, meaningful experience, Bard Academy shares both faculty and campus resources with Bard College at
Simon’s Rock. Bard Academy is one of very few private high schools with college-quality facilities dedicated to arts, science and technology, and research and
scholarship, as well as health, community, and athletics.
Bard Academy students work in new and invigorating ways. They study a range of disciplines and draw connections between those disciplines. They build strong
writing habits, learning to engage in writing as a way of thinking and form of expression. At the same time, they explore the technologies of the digital age. These
are skills that enable success in the classroom and enrich a well-rounded life.
At Bard Academy, students are encouraged to bring an independent, questioning mind to reading and writing. They are asked to challenge and analyze their own
assumptions and the ideas of others. And they're expected to infuse discussions and debates with a global perspective. In these ways, students experience
profound personal transformations and expand their knowledge of the world — a world that will benefit from their participation in it.
Along with all of these opportunities, we ensure that students have all the guidance and support they need: academic support from faculty members, academic
advisors, and tutors; and social and emotional support from mentors, residential life staff, and our health and wellness team.
Students have weekly Advisory Meetings with faculty and the Academy residence hall is staffed with live-in residence directors whose roles are as much to advise
as to supervise. Full health and counseling services are available through our Wellness Center, and we promote a healthy lifestyle for all of our students both in
individual advising and in regular well-being seminars. College students from Simon’s Rock act as mentors, tutors, and role models in making the transition to life
away from home.
