Bard Early College staff are dedicated, talented individuals with diverse experiences, skills, backgrounds, and perspectives who make the early college education possible.
Bard High School Early College faculty and staff are experienced professionals committed to their fields, with a special interest in working with younger students. Approximately two-thirds of full-time faculty members hold a terminal degree (typically a doctorate) in their fields of study, and all permanent, full-time faculty become certified by OSSE. Faculty are selected through national searches and come from higher education and secondary education teaching backgrounds, and they receive training in early college pedagogy. Almost all classes are taught by full-time faculty. Our staff includes student support, admissions, and administrative professionals who are committed to our students and early college education. Our student-faculty ratio is approximately 20 to 1.
