Welcome New Students!
Congratulations on your acceptance to Bard High School Early College (BHSEC) Queens. We are delighted that you will be joining us in the fall.

We start the fall semester with a Writing and Thinking Workshop where you will work closely with a small group of students and one of our teachers.
