The Office of Admission at Bard High School Early College is committed to recruiting motivated young adults from all neighborhoods in Cleveland, Ohio and surrounding areas. We seek students who are intellectually curious and motivated to accept the challenge of pursuing a liberal arts college education after completing two years of high school, typically at the age of 16. It is our goal to provide our students with a challenging liberal arts curriculum that fosters and cultivates their intellectual curiosity and creativity.
We assess students through a qualitative admissions process that includes an interview and faculty-designed writing assessment. We seek to admit applicants from a wide range of backgrounds who demonstrate maturity, intellectual curiosity, and a love of learning.
