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.
