Bard High School Early College Cleveland has filled our class of 2021.  Please note we are opening an East Side location inside of John Adams this fall.  We are still accepting applications for the class of 2021 at that location.  Students entering grades 9-11 may submit an application at any time if they are interested in attending BHSEC.  The admissions office will look at additional students at the semester and summer break based on space. The BHSEC application includes an interview and writing assessment. BHSEC seeks students who demonstrate academic ambition and intellectual curiosity. 

Applications for class of 2022 will be available starting September 1, 2017.  BHSEC also offers a shadowing program between October-December for interested students.  Any student who would like to shadow needs to have the completed application on file.
