Our Admission Process

Our Admission Process

                    Visit us during one of our 2018-2019 Open Houses for more information! The Bard High School Early College admissions process includes participation in an open house and admission session, an individual interview with a Bard staff member, and a writing assessment. Bard DC does not review middle school records or standardized tests as part of admissions for the 9th grade. Bard DC seeks students who demonstrate motivation, intellectual curiosity, and excitement about an academic challenge, and who are eager to dive into college coursework at an earlier age. Current 8th and 10th grade students are eligible to apply. Bard DC will hold open house and admission sessions throughout Washington, D.C. for interested students and families. At open houses, students and families can learn more about Bard DC and, if interested, participate in our admissions process on site. To formally apply, students must submit a My School DC application online by February 1st.
