WRITING & THINKING PROGRAM (AUGUST 29-31): Students at Bard Early College Baltimore begin the year the same way students do at Bard College, Simon's Rock at Bard College, and Bard's other early colleges: by experiencing Bard's signature writing orientation program. During Writing & Thinking, students spend the entire school day with their advisory group and one professor, exploring new ideas, new texts, and new thinkers in a collaborative learning community. From August 29-August 31, Writing & Thinking will begin at 8:30 a.m.; students will be dismissed at 1:30 p.m. The normal academic year schedule and school day will begin on September 1.
